Summer Dungeness fishery
By Mike Moyer


June 10, 2010

It's a serious issue that demands serious attention and we need to have the resource on our minds. Being a commercial fisherman is a good thing. I come from a commercial fishing family and am proud of that.

I do not believe that commercial fishermen and sport fishermen should all have to put away their gear equally because they do not impact the resource equally. In this case the summer Dungeness commercial fishery must be closed and should stay closed.

Hey, and thanks for the crab 21 years ago! Good memories Chris.
