    Default Another proposal to choke off dipnetting

    Proposal 165 in the 2009/2010 proposal book just out from fish and game wants to not allow dipnetting till the biological escapement goal is met.
    This was written by Steve Vanek, a commercial fisherman on the peninsula. He was also the person who tried to cut dipnetters back to three fish a day a number of years ago.
    Look at the Kenai now. The commercials hve caught 1.9 million fish and yet the escapement goal has still not been met. So if this proposal was already in play, we all would still not be allowed to dipnet yet.
    Here we go again. Pass this on to all that dipnet. Start talking it up with you friends and relatives. Join SCADA at Be ready to testify in March at the BOF meeting or write a responce and send it in. Comments are accepted till march 2,2010.
    Just help get the word out. Thanks, Ken

    Well, in the past there have also been proposals from "sporties" ;-) to not allow commercial fishing until esc goals are met. All are wrong-headed and not likely to go very far, IMO. Art.

    Default *sigh*

    Those guys that think dipnetters are directly impacting comm fisheries really have a lot of misdirected hostility. Maybe we should get them a shrink or send them on a vacation? Or send them to a place that provides logical thought pattern coaching, like a school.
