Bristol Bay Borough is a borough of the U.S. state of Alaska located on Bristol Bay or Iilgayaq Bay. As of the 2010 census the borough population was 997.[2] The borough seat is Naknek.[3] There are no incorporated settlements.

Incorporated in 1962, Bristol Bay was the first of Alaska's boroughs to be created. It is also among the smallest, consisting of little more than the rectangle of land around Naknek on the coast and King Salmon (which, uniquely, serves as the borough seat for the neighboring Lake and Peninsula Borough) inland.
