Alaska commercial fishing news and notes
They mention bycatch; but only as a supply of dead kings they propose to sample.
Like OJ lookin for the real killer on the golf course
"They mention bycatch....", that's about all they will do because somewhere along the way, their projects are being paid for by CDQ funds.
Smoke and mirrors, stalling for time in order for the continuation of the raping of the Bering Sea right down to the last King Salmon.
Funny how the attitudes learned and instilled while working for the department on "The Rock" at Kompound Kodiak influences all other fishery decisions in their careers.Hence, continue our escapement monitoring, throw in some additional smolt monitoring, maybe even some fry abundance, mix it together, avoid the larger marine issues, and call it good. Bake for five to ten years and see what happens. Never look outside the Kompound, hunker down, steady as she goes...
The obvious mis-connection is that of avoiding "the larger marine issues".
KK, "Kompound Kodiak" - interesting acronym. KKKK - "Kompound Kodiak" Kills Kings.King Crab and King Salmon use to be abundant down there around Kodiak Island in the 60's and 70's. People use to be able to make a good living right off their shore. What was once can be again with the right people managing the resources. Gotta be tough and fair to stand firm against those who want to fish, fish and fish even though there is sign of declines.
