If we want anymore Kings in the Kenai, the setnet fishery must be abolished. Times have changed and this method is wiping out our Kings. Its time to find another way to harvest sockeye.Traps? Drifters? Anything that allows passgage of Kings would be welcome(state buyout of permits) It is time for all sportfisherman to get together(impossible dream) and hammer the BOF. I realize its a tall order but we have seen that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So maybe if we keep squeaking something may happen or at least be heard.
Commercial fishing bans in other parts of the world have worked so lets rally, stop the setnets and save our Kings.I know there are many other variables affecting our King runs but we have to start somewhere. In river restrictions are already in place so lets get the next in line.
