The Alaska Board of Fisheries has decided to open commercial
Dungeness fishing in the Ketchikan area on June 15th, 2009. This
just happens to be when the crabs are breeding and have soft
shells, this hasn't been done since the 80's because they almost
WIPED the species OUT!!
PLEASE WRITE TO OUR CONGRESS MEN AND WOMEN AND GOV. SARAH PALIN
OR BETTER YET CALL AND COMPLAIN
Right on the Board of Fisheries home page it states "The
board of fisheries main role is to conserve and develop the fisheries
resources of the state."
I don't see this as conservation at all and I don't see how anyone
This should not be allowed to happen the board is not listening
to fisherman, fish and game or all the biologists that are saying
this is a terrible idea. We need to get everyone to take a stand.
If you value this resource at all you will take a minute and
e-mail Gov. Palin at www.gov.state.ak.us/govmail/php
And the Alaska Board of Fisheries at www.boards.adfg.state.ak.us
And anyone else you can think of
We LOVE our DUNGIES and would hate to see their population diminish
in this or any other area.
About: "My husband and
I are in the commercial fishing industry. My husband has been
fishing for 20 years and I have been for 11 years now. We were
both born and raised in Ketchikan and we now have our own family
that will also be raised here."
