I am concerned about the Parnell Administration’s refusal to process fishermen’s water rights applications, using the excuse that they didn’t have enough staff. Under former Commissioner Dan Sullivan, DNR worked hard to help PacRim develop Chuitna for a millionaire from Texas. The state should put the same effort into processing Alaska fishermen’s water reservation applications. Coastal communities like Homer depend on these water reservations for the health of our fisheries and local economy.
