Last August in PWS a commercial gillnet boat was running his gear entirely across a small coastal stream with wild runs of silvers and pinks. When asked, he said he was subsistence fishing under an proxy agreement with a local native villiage member. I support the concept and practice of subsistence fishing, but these commercial quantities of wild salmon were for sure not going to feed families and neighbors. They were to be sold on the commercial market, without the restrictions on where commercial boats can fish, but I understand only when there were commercial openers. These small wild runs cannot sustain commercial fishing, that is why there are no commercial fishing signs posted, yet this commercial subsistence fishing is largely unregulated...what is going on?? Yes, we checked with the Eastern PWS biologist, and he said this was perfectly legal and didn't seem concerned. How can this type of commercial fishing be sanctioned under the label of subsistence? And, be allowed to net across an entire wild run day after day during the spawning run?
