From Voices of the Peninsula, Aug. 20, “Sometimes Fisheries Must Change with the Times,” I offer some timely rebuttal.
Commercial fishermen were limited to protect the resource on the heels of the same laws introduced in Washington and Oregon. The law was also enacted to ensure that permit holders could earn a livelihood. Guides remain unlimited. Dipnetters remain unlimited. Charters are now limited, somewhat. Area H extends from Seward to Susitna. If the permit card spoke it would say salmon, all species!
