    Nerka - Publishing your name attached to your moniker associated with this BB was unfortunate. And it's inconsistent with the rules on this BB. I would not have done that for the reasons you stated.

    But Craig didn't post on this BB. He put it in his own article. That would not be inconsistent with journalistic ethics. Indeed, if he had published your strongly worded comments without identifying the source, his ethics could be called into question. Journalistic ethics are different than scientific ethics. And Craig is not a scientist. He's a journalist.

    The fact remains that you posted your comments on a hotly debated topic that is also subject to a high profile lawsuit that questions State management of some Pacific salmon stocks in Alaska. And they were good comments. They were well supported, strongly worded, and backed by substance. I'm not surprised they were picked up by someone interested in writing about this subject. And I'm not surprised you received some unwanted publicity because of it. Unfortunate, but not all that surprising.

    As I stated earlier, this is a good reminder of the importance of what we write on this BB, especially by those participants who posses a deep understanding of the issues.

    Nerka I sympathize and understand your point. The bottom line is anything you say can and may be used.

    Sorry, but that was a personal.
    I paraphrased to delete his name on this board

    The latter claim touched off retired state fisheries biologist that once managed the Cook Inlet commercial fishery. He was involved in the over-escapement studies. And he has long been eyed suspiciously by Alaska anglers and personal-use dipnetters as an ally of commercial fishermen.
    But some of the claims now being made by UCIDA struck a nerve and he lashed out on an Alaska Outdoors Directory forum where he posts as “Nerka.”

    Default more and more...

    Greed has no boundaries. As you point out, more enemies is exactly what the UCIDA needs about now.

I doubt very many folks at F&G look on UCIDA in a favorable way at this point which could hurt them down the road.
