Dipnet fisheries should be limited to Peninsula residents

In regard to so much ado about the “pollution” from dipnet fishing, the Kenai and Kasilof rivers dipnet personal-use fisheries as they exist now should be available for Kenai Peninsula Borough residents only. The area becomes “people polluted” if every one from north of the Kenai Peninsula is allowed to participate in a very limited area for personal-use fishing quotas.

Let the Anchorage and their out-lying areas people fish their own areas.

As a local resident my wife and I harvest our quota a bit at a time so we can better care and process our catch at home and not litter the fishing area, all of the waste being fertilizer for the garden or chicken food. This is not a recipe for most people. However, our proposal would reduce the pollution from “outsiders.”
