Why doesn't ADFG use their own data?
I see ADFG sportfish is still quoting 100% of ESSN harvest as Kenai LR kings on their fish counts page, and some in ADFG are still using that math to estimate ESSN harvest this year, despite ADFG having comprehensive genetic data which shows only about 3/4 of the kings harvested in this fishery are Kenai-bound.
Why doesn't ADFG sportfish acknowledge their own fairly expensive genetics data? Why do they keep adding to the misinformation and confusion rather than seeking to dispel it? I'm trying to take it easy on the department but it is ridiculous that this is still an issue.
