Alaska commercial fishing news and notes
Cool, now we can bring back Fish Traps!"And the court concluded that 13PCAF did not narrow the legislature's and Board of Fisheries' range of freedom in making allocation decisions because the Board "would be free to continue to allocate the salmon presently harvested by commercial set net fishers to other commercial fisheries...[or] authorize new gear types for commercial fishermen."
I think you are quoting the earlier court decision that was overturned
Setnetting was designed for widows and orphans on a subsistence lifestyle, not commercial trucking. Oh how tangled this Web has gotten. Decades of deceit.
"widows and orphans"What a bullshit thing to say.
What is wrong with widows and orphans? Spineless sculpin who doesn't identify who you are! And now you are attacking subsistence folks who are widowed or without a parent? Can only be a greedy AFCA board member. Greed is appropriate and damn the widows and orphans, and all the rest, right???
Spend much time in school 9:58? Or did you attend the Kenai River School District.1872 Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Homestead Act: (“An Act to enable honorably discharged Soldiers and Sailors, their Widows and orphan Children, to acquire Homesteads on the public Lands of the United States”) April 4, 1872 (17 Stat 49); Amended June 8, 1872 (17 Stat 333); Amended March 3, 1873 (17 Stat 605)http://www.blm.gov/ak/st/en/prog/cultural/ak_history/homesteading/homesteading_laws.print.html
When you too stupid to read; 9:58, breed."The agreement called for the company to run an eight-month school for the islands' children and to support widows and orphans. The company's Aleut workers were to be paid $350 to $450 per year and the villages were to be given 25,000 dried salmon, 60 cords of firewood, and sufficient salt and barrels to preserve seal meat."http://www.akhistorycourse.org/articles/article.php?artID=181
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black...sportfishing is the equivalent of waterboarding. But Cook Inlet is screwed no matter how you split up those few fillets...anyone else want to move to the big city and cry a river about how there's too many people fishing?
I love it when the sporties and pukers get bitch slapped.
I think most folks in Alaska would agree that some form of setting a net has been around for many years, certainty exceeded your reference to the 1872 act. Except they operated in river. Just like it has evolved in the AYK region. You might have some reason to insult the gear type but what the court said is that we are all apart of the public trust and therefore cannot be excluded as an individual user class. It supported all types of users not just setnetters.
