Ekuk (Yup'ik Iquk) is a small unincorporated community in the Dillingham Census Area in the U.S. state of Alaska. Until 2002 it was the site of a large fish processing operation owned by Wards Cove Packing Company. Currently, it is inhabited mainly by seasonal fishing families who set gillnet in the nearby waters of the Nushagak Bay for mid-summer runs of sockeye salmon, early season runs of king salmon and late season runs of silver salmon.
Located 15 miles southeast of Dillingham, Ekuk is accessible only by sea or by air.
