    East Side Commercial Clammers?? Clam guides???? you really need to get serious about these issues. Halibut getting in short supply, Kings disappearing..... Clearly the word is out how good they are to eat and are getting beamed aboard alien space ships and being sold to others on distant planets.

    Indeed. It began with herring in K-Bay, then crab and shrimp there as well. Now it is kings in the rivers and clams on the beaches. I hope the halibut aren't next.

    People can only pillage a resource for so long. It just seems like it took Alaska managers a little longer to figure that out.

    Gee, in 1996 when the rigs in cook inlet got a waiver so they could discharge drilling muds directly into the inlet it was assumed that it was temporary and exploration would be limited and short lived. Not the case, and the beaches are silting in, deep creek and the ninilchick ( and the anchor) all run brown at the slightest rainfall or melt because of logging, and development. The " brown" goes somewhere, and I think it's the beaches.
    i told our local "clam bio" what I thought, and I honestly think she had an "Aha!" moment.... like the source of the mud and silt on the beaches was a mystery.
    Well, the waiver is up for reconsideration, so what are we gonna do? End the dumping? Or kiss our clams, herring and hooligan goodbye?
    sheesh.

    Interesting enough, I would say I have seen more of the bluffs above the beaches sloughed off this past winter than any I can think of. I may have made note of the amount of material on the beach a while back. In early April the beaches were incredibly soft from all the excess material that had come down. Hmmmmm.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!

    This has been a while coming. Just a year or so ago they reduced the daily bag for hardshell clams from 1,000 steamers and 700 butters to 80 combined....the KP truly is getting loved to death.

    That's a pretty serious reduction going to less than 1/4 the previous possession limit. When clams die off like this its definitely environmental and not due to harvest. The blanket reduction in take seems extreme like its unknown what is going on. Probably makes the troopers job easier though
