Contact & Staff Information


The Alaska Sea Otter Commission, a tribal consortium, was established in 1988 to promote Alaska Native involvement in policy decisions pertaining to sea otters.

In 1998, at the request of member tribes, the Alaska Sea Otter Commission added Steller sea lions to its mission and goals, formally expanding to the Alaska Sea Otter and Steller Sea Lion Commission (TASSC).

Since inception, TASSC has worked with coastal Alaska Native peoples and tribes to increase Alaska Native participation in marine mammal research, stewardship, and management.
