THIS POST IS POLITICAL IN NATURE. ADMINISTRATORS, DISMISS THIS AS NECESSARY!!!!
King salmon returns are in dire despair. Additionally, this comes as a direct result of overfishing, believing otherwise is foolish. Why then, would fisheries biologist TOM VANIA, the Cook Inlet Coordinator for the ADF&G, have this to say for the Anchorage Daily News
"Salmon populations are cyclic in nature.” "Right now, I have no reason to believe this is not just the bottom end of a cycle and that we won't come out of this cycle -- you see that in all game populations. But there are a lot of changes going on in the ocean environment right now surrounding global warming. Our understanding of what that's going to do to anadromous species we probably won't know for a number of years."

THIS QUOTE SEEMS TO DISREGARD ALL LOGIC, AND MOST CERTAINLY DISREGARDS BYCATCH FIGURES, THAT FOR KING SALMON ALONE, HAVE EQUATED TO WELL OVER 1.1 MILLION IN THE LAST 22 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!
Additionally, contact our beloved Senator Lisa Murkowski (A PRODUCT OF NEPOTISM THE LIKES OF WHICH WOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED IN OTHER STATES), who has allowed overfishing to occur while taking campaign contributions from big business seafood corporations in such large amounts that she has had to give money back!!!! ANYTHING TO MAKE A DOLLAR, INLCUDING WIPING OUT THE WILD KING SALMON POPULATION STATEWIDE, JUST LIKE THE ABALONE IN SOUTHEAST ALASKA 30 YEARS AGO!!!!! (If you are unfamiliar with this tragedy, I urge you read up on it… I fear that the King Salmon are next.)
