Personal-use fishery belongs to all Alaskans

Kenai residents, what’s all the fuss over the personal-use fishery? Keep in mind that the cleanliness of the beaches, parking areas and camping sites are maintained by the city, therefore the fees.

The Kenai River is an Alaskan salmon resource for all Alaskans, those that live on the peninsula have options that other Alaskans don’t.

1. Locals can drop off their dipnetters at no charge

2. Locals can park their vehicle for the day at a small fee.

3. Then locals can go home and clean their fish.

Therefore, folks living on the peninsula spend less money to dipnet than anyone else in Alaska, making it truly a subsistence fishery for the peninsula.

Some food for thought: If you think this resource should only be a Kenai resource because you live here, think again. The Permanent Fund oil is not from here, so maybe your PFD should only be distributed to those in Prudhoe Bay.
