• Balance the needs, wants, and expectations of all-now, and 7 generations from now • Understand risks/rewards, develop a plan of action, support it and execute on it • Deliver efficient and equitable economic benefits to our communities • Develop and deploy successful business models and adapt as needed for future use • Support bold thinking and continuous innovation • Deliver disciplined, purposeful, and sensible initiatives to sustain and stimulate new economic growth in our region
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Hello CVRF residents: Over the last 13 years I have served on the CVRF Board and have had the honor of governing with a team of our fellow residents, each of us democratically elected by a majority of the residents in our communities. These Board members from our 20 communities have shared the vision to bring our Company from the failure of Brown’s Point (and the painful cut in our CDQ) to where we are at the end of 2013, the largest owner/operator of US Bering Sea fisheries assets headquartered in Alaska. It is an achievement of which we can all be proud.
No matter our role in our own local community, each one of us is a part of the whole that is Coastal Villages. We must pull together, work as a team, and treat each other with respect. If we throw stones randomly into the sea, we create ripples of chaos that cancel each other out. But pebbles thrown with common purpose create ripples which join together to become powerful waves, waves which can propel us to our chosen shore. As Robert Pitka, the Board member from Toksook Bay said, “We are all in the same boat.”
We operate our Bering Sea business profitably and we use this economic engine to generate money for our region to help our residents. I have a passion for our region. I care about the region’s residents. My goal now is to support the company in advancing this vision in order to create a bold and secure future for generations of Western Alaskans to come. Accordingly, I am committed to defending the intelligent, profitable management of our operations in the Bering Sea for the benefit of our residents and the future of our communities.
I know what we have accomplished so far, and I have a vision of what we still have to achieve. I trust that we can remain united and strong in our message to Congress about JUST FIX. From a strong, united position, I know we can grow our business for the benefit of our people. We can grow to be heard and respected by Congress - we are not just a CDQ group, we are the industry. I pledge to do what is necessary to succeed in fixing the CDQ allocations, and I count on you, the good residents of the Coastal Villages region, to do the same. We must all pull together. I will ensure that the staff is motivated to achieve our foremost goal: MORE. More respect. More work. More fish. More hope. This is just the beginning. Let us take pride in the performance of 2013 and unite for the future!
I was elected the CVRF President a year and half ago, and I appreciate the level of trust this represents. Since my election, I have doubled my efforts to lead our region in unity so that our voice will be heard and our views respected. There is strength in unity, and I believe that our ability to achieve a unified voice will also strengthen individual communities. Unity has its challenges though Quyana, – we are a large community made up of individual people with unique motivations, desires and needs. However, I know that with patience and understanding we can find common ground and the truth will lead us to achieve Paul Tulik, CVRF President unbreakable unity.
There is strength in unity, and I believe that our ability to achieve a unified voice will also strengthen individual communities. Unity has its challenges though – we are a large community made up of individual people with unique motivations, desires and needs. -Paul Tulik, Nightmute

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Residents of the CVRF region: 2013 was a year of challenges, and a year of learning. Market conditions throughout the Bering Sea fisheries put pressure on revenue from our seafood sales, the engine that provides the power behind our programs. At the same time, the needs of our communities required us to maintain commitments we made before we felt the full impact of the market downturn. We were challenged to be creative in finding ways to improve our operations and become more efficient. We believe the lessons learned will pay dividends for years to come. As you review our 2013 audited financial information on pages 18-20, you will note that our total revenue for 2013 fell 11.4%, from $115.4 million in 2012 to $102.2 million in 2013. We responded by cutting general and administrative costs by 16.2%, from $13.0 million in 2012 to $10.9 million in 2013. However, we chose to follow through with our commitments to programs and projects, and these expenses rose from $27.9 million in 2012 to $28.2 million in 2013. As a result of all of these factors, CVRF’s total assets decreased by $10.8 million over the year, from $314.6 million at the end of 2012 to $303.8 million at the end of 2013. What we learned was that we need to continually improve our operations and become more efficient so that we can readily withstand the volatility inherent in the seafood markets and continue to better deliver more efficient and effective benefits to our residents over the long term. This has been our primary emphasis in 2014 and will continue to be going forward. Operationally, we move into 2014 from a position of strength. We have had success operating our crab platform for nine seasons, and our pollock and cod platforms for six seasons each. Both pollock and crab fishing were strong in 2013 and we see this continuing. The cod fishery was more of a challenge, but our vessels performed well and we look for the cod market to improve in 2014. Together, these operations generated over $27.2 million in cash in 2013 (and an average of $31.3 million per year since 2011). This performance helped us cover the operating deficit at our Platinum facility, at which we buy and process salmon, halibut and herring. We look forward to the time when this facility will not only continue to employ a large number of our residents, but will also contribute positively to our bottom line. Working together, I know we will achieve this goal! In the marketplace, our seafood products have achieved a reputation for quality. This is a testament to both our fishing crews and those who work on our production lines. Our brand reflects this reputation and is valuable. The quality it represents enables us to do business with some of the leading food companies
in the US, Europe and Asia. Our story is also valuable. It is the story of over 9,300 residents of western Alaska striving to improve their lives through hard work using the resources of the Bering Sea. We know this story resonates with the market. Who we are and what we stand for makes us different from our competitors. It is an advantage that they cannot copy, and we intend to use this advantage to take market share and improve our margins despite fluctuations in quotas, fish size, recoveries and markets. These highlights are interesting, even inspiring, but they don’t tell the whole story of 2013. This was the year that our programs were expanded to propel more people, reach more families, and to better serve the communities in our region. It represents a fundamental and positive change in our philosophy for investment in the region, and it seems to be working well. 2013 was a year of sowing the seeds of hope in our communities - the hope that through unity we can gain the respect of our representatives in Washington DC. We maintain that the CDQ allocations are flawed, because they are. They will be fixed, because they need to be. Our communities will have a voice in the management of the Bering Sea, because they deserve one. We shouldn’t stop there. All laws that impact our region deserve our attention and should motivate us to interact with lawmakers in both Juneau and Washington DC. Our people have a right to be heard, and deserve the respect to be listened to. The level of spending that occurred in 2013 was worth it. Yes, well worth it! But we cannot sustain this level of investment in our communities without both growth and discipline. This process will not be easy. It will require focus to identify and pursue the right acquisitions. It will require vision and great courage to execute the mission with a clear understanding of both the risks and rewards involved. It will require short-term restraint in exchange for the long-term pay-off. And it will require trust in the staff of CVRF to carry out the wishes of the Board. It is time for the CVRF team to apply all that we have learned to take advantage of bigger and better opportunities in the Bering Sea. Together we can take the next step as we leave behind the failures of the Brown’s Point era and look forward to solid growth. So as we tighten our belt in 2014, we intend to maintain a balance in spending for short-term wants and saving for opportunities to grow. The path that we are on requires support from the residents. Always get out to vote – your voice matters. And it is not too soon to begin to consider the CVRF Board elections in Chefornak, Chevak, Goodnews Bay, Mekoryuk, Napakiak, Nightmute, and Scammon Bay. As Edgar Hoelscher of Hooper Bay has always reminded me: “the wishes of the community and for the benefit of the people.” We thank you for your understanding and patience. Forever begins now.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Residents Elected by Their Community
CVRF believes strongly in the voice of the people: the voice of the people at the federal level, the voice of the people at the state level, and the voice of the people at our own company level. Every two years, one third of the CVRF Board of Directors is up for election by the residents of their community, for the opportunity to represent that community and its people on the CVRF Board. The election process is a standardized, democratic process designed to give fair voice to all the residents of the community.
Welcome to Six New Board Members
The residents of six CVRF member communities elected new Board members at the end of 2013. The CVRF Board and staff welcome these new members and look forward to continued success during their terms. Name Oscar Active Sr. Roland Lewis Stephen Maxie Jr. John Samuel Darren Cleveland Robert Pitka Sr.

BERING SEA OPERATIONS Coastal’s Bering Sea operations are what generate the cash that CVRF uses to pay for the CSC jobs, the salmon, herring and halibut fishing and processing opportunities, and the other programs and services for our 20 member communities. If we don’t fish profitably in the Bering Sea, we will not be able to give money for scholarships, donate heating oil to families in need, buy fish from local fishermen, or employ mechanic/welders.
Northern Hawk: Coastal Villages is the sole owner and operator of the C/P Northern Hawk, a 341 foot catcher/processor that crews up to 135 people. In 2013, the Northern Hawk caught over 92 million pounds of pollock worth more than $45 million in revenue. Coastal spends a significant amount of money on technology to avoid the incidental catch of salmon and moves to new fishing locations if needed. But fishing is fishing and if there are more salmon swimming in the ocean, it is
likely that there will be more salmon caught. The 230 chinook caught by CVRF in 2013 and donated to food banks in Alaska resulted in over $14 million in cash to help the people of our region. BSAI Partners, LLC: Coastal Villages Region Fund and Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation (NSEDC) joined together in 2011 to form BSAI Partners, LLC. This partnership, along with an affiliate of Maruha-Nichiro, purchased inshore pollock quota and vessels from Wards Cove Packing Company. CVRF and NSEDC each own approximately 35.5 percent of this fleet, with Maruha owning the remaining 29 percent. These boats caught a little over 110 million pounds of pollock in 2013 (40 million pounds attributable to CVRF) worth $7.6 million for our 20 CVRF villages.

Coastal Villages is the 100% owner and operator of the Arctic Sea, Bering Sea, North Sea and Wassilie B. CVRF hired 13 residents to work on the crab vessels in 2013 - these residents earned $496,472 in wages. As a whole, Coastal’s vessels caught 744,035 pounds of king crab, 130,600 pounds of tanner crab and 5.8 million pounds of opilio crab, generating $27 in revenue for our 20 CVRF Villages. Working on our crab vessels is a difficult but rewarding job. CVRF would like to thank the crew-members who worked on our crab boats for their tireless effort and the impact that those efforts help to make in our communities.

Coastal Villages wholly owns and operates the Lilli Ann, North Cape and Deep Pacific - three cod longliners that fish in the Bering Sea. The Lilli Ann and Deep Pacific fished and caught about 29 million pounds of cod in 2013, worth over $20 million in revenue. The CVRF Board of Directors changed the official homeport of the Lilli Ann to Scammon Bay, AK from Seattle, WA during their full board meeting in April 2013. Thank you to our hard working longline crew for their dedication.

People Helping People The Coastal Villages region is vibrant and growing. However, it is plagued by a lack of industry and there are not enough steady jobs for everyone. CVRF works hard every day to create real jobs for our residents - jobs with real expectations and which promote real achievements by our people. At the same time, we continue to pursue and invest in economic development that all of us can rely on to support our region for the long run. The benefits provided by Coastal Villages Region Fund – totaling over $28 million in 2013 alone, and over $294 million since 1997 – are having a dramatic impact within our region. The bigger CVRF gets, the more important it is that we focus on working together as a team, unified in our resolve, no matter who we are or which village we come from. We are one community, not 20 - the Coastal Villages Community. Through unity, teamwork, mutual respect and thoughtfulness for each other, we will grow stronger together, and we will be able to do even more to help each other. Unity Forever!

Coastal Villages Seafoods CVRF has been buying fish from local fishermen for the past 15 years. Because of the high costs of electricity, fuel, freight, etc, in our region this operation results in a loss every year and must be subsidized by our earnings from Bering Sea fisheries. Our current allocations in the Bering Sea fisheries, which are inequitable, therefore impact the amount of money that CVRF can afford to spend on our in-region fishery operations and other programs. CVRF remains committed to getting the allocations fixed so that our residents will be able to experience the full potential of the CDQ Program.

Working Together Operating fisheries successfully in our region requires an inordinate amount of planning, coordination and teamwork. The logistics and effort required to consistently deliver a high-quality, desirable product to the marketplace hinges on the cooperation and hard work of everyone involved. Our local fishermen fish diligently during the intense summer season to catch wild Alaska fish. Tender crew must constantly work to balance the needs of both the plant and our fishermen while dealing with ever-changing tides and weather conditions to get the catch to the processing
plant in optimal condition. Processors at our plant in Platinum work the processing line for long hours each day. Their care in handling the offloaded fish is critical to producing consistent, high quality fish products. Behind the front lines, the staff of Coastal Villages coordinate to prepare the tenders, the plant and the line crew for the season, and arrange for the transportation and sale of finished products to our customers so that the operation functions as seamlessly as possible each year. Quyana to all the people that work together to make our in-region fisheries a success!

But the truth is, we should be able to do more. We should be able to do more because our residents deserve their pro rata share of the public resource of the Bering Sea fisheries. Our share should reflect both the fact that CVRF represents a third of all CDQ residents and that we have a great need due to limited job opportunities, limited infrastructure, high transportation and energy costs, and high poverty rates. The message from the grass roots—you—is being heard: “We want to be treated fairly and with respect.” So don’t lose hope, don’t give up. Keep calling the Alaska Delegation and keep writing letters. Trust that your voice is strong. Do the work to understand the facts and the truth. When election day comes, we encourage you to get out and vote. Your vote = Our voice

The people of the CVRF region have asked to be treated fairly, with equity and respect. We have written letters, we have made phone calls, now we must vote. There is no right or wrong answer in the polling booth: just get out and let your voice be heard. During the past year, CVRFâ€™s in-region Community Service Managers (CSM) and Community Service Representatives (CSR) encouraged our residents to get ready to cast their votes by registering to vote or updating their voter information. As of August 2014, 844 new voters from the CVRF region have registered. There are now more than 5,000 registered voters in our 20 member communities. Our region residents want to be heard and want to be respected. If you havenâ€™t already, go register to vote. It only takes a couple of minutes. The deadline to register for the next general election, which is on November 4, is October 5th, 2014!
