Pesticide spraying in an area where wild salmon are harvested for the commercial market would greatly jeopardize the higher price consumers are willing to pay for wild Alaska salmon. If our state government will not respond to the probability of poisoning the people of Hydaburg who have always harvested fish and berries from Long Island, then maybe put in terms of Dollars they will revoke this permit to poison Long Island and the surrounding area.
There is a legislative teleconference this evening at 6:00 pm (Tues 4/25) in the legislative info office. I am going to go to talk to our representatives and would encourage other concerned citizens to contact their representatives. This is not just about one small area. This is a precedent for the future health of our fisheries and the people of Alaska.
