Thread: Seward salmon stocking

  1. #1

    Default Seward salmon stocking

    I thought I'd heard ADF&G had pulled the plug on chinook stocking in Seward, but I see that was wrong. Reading ADF&G's stocking report it says they putting 130+ thousand in yearly. OK, good So why is there no mention of the red stocking in Ressurection bay? Is that being done by someone other than the state?

    There have been Red's going up to Bear Lake since at least 1980 and probably long before that so there always have been a small amount going up. I don't know where all the current fish are coming from though.

    Cook Inlet Aguaculture release those sockeye for commercial fishing interests.

    Fish good memory on the stocking. I had forgotten about the hatchery fish program there that went to court due to Brown bears if I remember right.

    Something about hatcheries drawing in bears, making it unsafe to co-habitate or something like like.

    I just spent some time on Cook Inlet Aquaculture's site...interesting. First, the name....since the vast majority of the #'s seem to go into and come back out of Ressurection Bay, not Cook Inlet! So basically the sport (snagging) catch of reds there is just incedential to the commercial interest it would seem. I guess I'm kind of surprised theres a fishery of that size that isn't run by/stocked by the state...although I expect they moniter/permit it pretty well.

    An additional question I have been asked: is the silver fishery still enhanced? and by who?

    Yes, it's still being stocked by both ADF&G and Cook Inlet Aquaculture.

    But not nearly to the extent that it used to be, is that accurate to say?
