Get the latest news here! The Southeast Alaska Seiners Association was formed in 1968 by a group of concerned Ketchikan commercial salmon purse seiners. As time wore on in the early 1980's, SEAS expanded to include all of Southeast Alaska. Today the board of directors is from multiple towns throughout Southeast Alaska. Board members hail from Sitka, Petersburg, Ketchikan, Bellingham, Seattle and Burlington-Anacortes.

THANKS REPRESENTATIVE ORTIZ
Representative Ortiz has added several amendments to the Fish and Game operating budget. The one we specifically like is adding BACK $119,000 to partially fund aerial surveys in SE. Let's hope it sails through the process!
HB115 Keep Your Eye on This
HB 115 is a tax bill calling to tap the permanent fund and establish a state sales tax. The problem is that they have added language to a section ( 43.22.050) of the bill that would make skippers liable to collect state income tax on all crew members if a state tax is implemented. This would be a nightmare! Why they are singling out crew members and not other groups who hire contractors is a mystery. During the UFA's Spring meeting in February, we had the opportunity to address our delegation about how much this is not a workable scenario, and offered other methods of collecting said tax should the bill pass. Keep your eye on this one....
