False Pass is located on Isanotski Strait
at the tip of the Alaska Peninsula. Isanotski Strait is the most important pass
for fishermen traveling between the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea.
Fishermen all over Alaska know our location as "The Pass".
Fishing is the most important economic activity
in the area. The Isanotski Corporation is doing all it can to support
the fishing industry. The Corporation operates a Crab Pot and Fishing
Gear Storage, a grocery store and a package liquor store to support the salmon, cod, halibut
and crab fleets. Other fisheries support businesses are being planned.
The Isanotski Corporation owns nearly all
the land along both sides of Isanotski Strait between the Bering Sea and the
Gulf of Alaska. Corporation lands are rich in wildlife, possess exceptional
scenic beauty and are in their original wilderness state. The Corporation
leases land near the community for commercial purposes and makes land available
for residential use.

these pages you will also learn more about our community and the wilderness
that surrounds us.
