The Alaska Board of Fisheries today rejected a proposal to eliminate the 32-foot length limit on salmon driftnet boats in Bristol Bay.
Proposal 15 failed on a 3-3 vote.
Board members voting in favor of the proposal were Bill Brown, Howard Delo and John Jensen.
Voting against were Karl Johnstone, Mel Morris and Janet Woods.
Vince Webster, a Bristol Bay permit holder, abstained.
I'll have more later on other major board votes today.
