Your recent article about Gov. Parnell requesting disaster relief for commercial fisherman is a political tactic only. Whose department closed the fisheries? Right! Why ask the Federal Government for something you should have prevented by proper oversight. Parnell’s Dept. of Fish and Game premeditated these actions without proper science and data. The northern district commercial fishery was restricted back in May of this year prior to any science or data of low runs. Explain why these fisherman were restricted before any current data was available.
