The Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association was incorporated in 1976 to provide the Cook Inlet drainage with an organized, scientifically-respected community, responsible for the protection of self-perpetuating salmon stocks and the rehabilitation of salmon stocks and habitat. These goals set forth by the board of directors are to be accomplished by maximizing the value of Cook Inlet's common property salmon resource through the use of science, education, and technology.

The Association is involved in hatchery management, lake fertilization, flow control structure operation, fishway management and construction, habitat surveying, and education. The Association's salmon enhancement, rehabilitation and restoration activities are guided by the Board of Directors, the Cook Inlet Regional Salmon Enhancement Plan and CIAA's Strategic Plan.
