The salmon fisheries are sustainable, and are about to be re-certified as being sustainable. When you were 14 years old the management was much older and as with most things it has evolved into a good system that is in place today. Your personal attack on me only shows how informed you are, get informed, don't rely on me to get the answers you should have had before opening your "opinion". If indeed you are so informed you should be able to find the people of KCSA to speak with. Perhaps you should read my comments again, for you appear to believe that I am working with or for the KCSA and in fact I am not. I just believe in it because of what I have heard from the KCSA members I have heard talk and because of my experience in the seafood industry. It is not my job to convince you for I could actually care less about the opinion of someone who does not live in Ketchikan or vote in Ketchikan... who never has a good thing to say about anything happening in Ketchikan. Nuff said, get informed not just opinionated.
I think the following article
sums up the health of our Salmon Fisheries, Herring is not being
fished in area's because they are being managed for a comeback,
other factors other than fishing and management play roles in
species development as well. Here is the article: Southeast
records record king salmon harvest in 2004 (Anchorage Daily News)
and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Sitnews.
