From the PSPA’s position paper:

PSPA is an industry trade association that has been in active existence since 1914. In all those years, the Association has not taken a position in opposition to any specific development project or category of projects of other natural resource industries. Doing so now is not a decision our Association takes lightly. While, after careful consideration, we are compelled to oppose development of the Pebble mine project due to its unique location, size, and potential harm, we look forward to continuing to work cooperatively with all Alaska industries on matters of mutual interest and to supporting projects that can ensure no negative impact on fishery resources or the marketability of Alaska seafood.

We strongly encourage all interested parties to read the entire position paper (see PDF below).
