Herring Fishery Management
by Bill Thomas Sr.
April 12, 2004
For the sake of not glorifying support for a herring fishery
in Behm Canal, I totally agree with Andy Rauwolf. He said it
as good as it can be said. To open a fishery before adequate
stocks are there is not responsible management. This defies the
sustained yield principle, which is supposed to be commandment
No.1 in natural resource management.
If clearcutting timber isn't
a history lesson, I see no need to spend good money in the name
of management. Remember ANILCA? This lack of management is why
the Feds will be here for a long time to come.
The ADF&G still lacks the
ability to demonstrate responsible management. I'm glad the herring
are hearty and stubborn as they are.
