Here's the 2012 Bristol Bay sockeye forecast

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is forecasting a catch of 21.8 million sockeye salmon next year.

That compares to this year's catch of 21.9 million sockeye on a preseason forecast of 28.5 million.

I'll guess a 30m catch.

Whatever the catch, i'm sure we will get f'd on the price. No such thing as supply and demand north of the chain. Where are those foreign processors?

To what extent has BBRSDA helped the fishery??

so being thier forcasting method results in a lower catch than predicted , it sounds like a very dismal year in the Bay. This is the best case scenario for a preseason price negotiation. And then hopefully they are way under on the forcast

I agree!! If only we could put our competitive egos aside long enough to unite on a pre-season pricing methodology... Seems if those crabbers can do it, we should give it a shot as well.

I would settle for the 1988 price.

Forecasted harvests have averaged 3% below actual harvest since 2001 and harvest differences have ranged from 22% below actual harvest in 2009 to 36% above actual harvest in 2011.

The most interesting legislation, ever before seen,

Alaska Statute, from the Confederate Party's Plantation Economy

(1) the levy, amendment, or termination of the tax is approved by a majority vote of the eligible interim-use permit and entry permit holders in the fishery who vote in an election held under this section;
(2) at least 30 percent of the eligible interim-use permit and entry permit holders in the fishery cast a ballot in the election to levy, amend, or terminate the tax; and
(3) the election results are certified by the commissioner of community and economic development under (d) of this section.

I posted the question on 11/14 @ 7:10 to understand what benefits the fishermen have received for their 1% tax.
Quoting bylaws and snipping about past injustices are not productive.
What missing papers from 2010 are you referring to??

The Taxes and Audit papers? On the mssing link of the Bob Waldrop, can't find a job page?

Show US the MONEY?

And the new Prince William Sound Seiner Seat?

PWSAC, Seiner Seat Robin Dexter 2011 minutes?

"Dexter said we are essentially returning the money back to the fleet in a different way. The old argument is give me the money back because I can spend it better than the Government can. Well guess what, you can't the government does a better job than you do???"

At least we know Matt will fit in perfectly with Barney, Robert and the rest of the clowns, that still cant read the statute, the code, the bylaws, or where the money goes either.

Thank you for your post at 9:29. I to have requested the tax info for 2010. Will wait to see if it is made available.
What are yours and anybody eleses thoughts on the area-wide genetics project and ice barges??

Anonymous said...

From what I've heard and read, ADFG isn't interested in such detailed genetics and won't integrate the data into their management plans. So why do we fund it? Because it employs subsidiary groups of BBEDC.

Ice is a great plan for improving quality.

Problem is that when it increases from $80 a ton up to $200 a ton (slush, not ice, expensive cold water) it's not making sense for the 10 cent bonus. The shame is that the price increase was to provide for ice charges to be reimbursed to those boats on that barges' company fleet, or a BBEDC local stakeholder. Conflicts of interests that cost the majority of BBRSDA tax payers 100's of thousands of dollars annually.

The tenders should have ice machines onboard and distribute it free at the expense of that processor who is reaping the great benefits of the quality increases.

BBRSDA should be spending more on marketing.

I'm just a somebody else.

Thanks "somebody else" for your comments.
It is my understanding that ice is made available to watershed residents at no cost. In 2009 BBRSDA granted BBEDC $115,000 for their ice barge. There were 365 watershed permits in 2009. Using monetary figures supplied by CFEC it seems the grant to BBEDC was to return the 1% tax back to the watershed residents through a back door.
Just thinking....

Snopac has been delivering ice via tenders to it's fishermen for years. It's not free, but definitely competitive and extremely convenient.

db,

careful now, thinking might get you into trouble. I think that the ice barges were originally funded through federal grants that require equal rights and access. Something that BBEDC doesn't want you thinking about.

Problem is that selfish shortsightededness hurts the fishermen rather than help them. We are in "it" together but some people will never understand that. As long as that selfishness exists, we will never have true economic development such as a "public" processing plant with cold storage allowing fishermen to hold onto product, selling through a public bidding process. That would be true economic advancements, across the boards. What do you want to spend your 1% on, more benefits to processors, ADFG, and economic development corporations that already have net values in the 100's of millions of dollars ?

Just thinking out loud.

Well,
Their corporation papers mention all, but of course 1%, is a big number to 99%
