This was posted 8 months ago and we post it again as we are coming into the time of the year where we will be discussing Kanalku sockeye and Chatham sockcye in general
Issue of the Week- Chatham Strait Sockeye
We believe that looking at Kanalku and the recent rebuilding going on, it's obviously the state's plan that's been working. The state has stayed with its early season run timing model. The timing of this fishery and keeping the seine nets out of the water for the early portion of July, is an important contribution for our shared success in quickly rebuilding Kanalku. Again, we urge you to reject the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction petition and move on to the local solution of actually identifying Chatham Strait sockeye stocks through Genetic Stock Identification program and building the Kanalku Falls fish ladder.
