It's a gillnetter, but not much of a threat to fish down here. The Bristol Bay fishery is very tightly managed and the biggest target are sockeye, I think. Healthy runs of salmon for decades even with gillnetting. They also don't have the issue of selective fisheries up there that we have down here. Better habitat and management. Both things we lack.

Many of us understand that not all Gill netting is bad, It's the way that they are managed that is another story.

Sorry got to disagree with both of you. I would think that any gillnet boat fishing in Alaska(though the Bristol Bay is like a terminal fishery the vessel can be fished with other permits/areas) would be a threat to the fisheries in this state as a good percentage of them are a intercept fishery,B.C,Washington, Oregon,and California bound fish.Healthy runs for decades... Bristol Bay has had some very poor runs of fish also.If you do some reading you will see that there is quite a bit of talk in Alaska about selective methods of harvest,things need to change nets don't differentiate between species,yield a low quality product, and ruin the the habitat in a lot of cases.Fish Boy I won't go as far to say all commercial fishing is bad but I will say all nets are. Things need to change there are a lot of different methods that can be used to harvest fish selectively that are very efficient and that yield a far better product that in turn means more money to the fisherman and nets in my opinion are not one of them. :roll:

Buying the boat and license would do nothing to save fish. All it does is allow less boats to make more money. The same amount of fish are being harvested per commercial allocations.

in reality we shouldnt be blaming each other we should be blaming canada (sorry if i am biased), for a fact they do catch 60% of our chums, now i think this year we had a predicting at about 1.3 million. for puget sound and hood canal, well do the math on that one and then think aobut it what they do to our silvers, reds and kings.

. Hopefully those runs up North will stay healthy with the right management.
Not to defend Canada, but I'm sure they feel a little squeezed too. Those Fraiser bound sockeye get snatched up by Washington based comm. Not to mention the fish that are cut off in S.E. Ak. Fish wars are nothing new.
You guys don't want to eat farmed fish..do you?

I would like you to know that I am not opposed to commercial fishing, nets yes… I am for better management, selective harvest, and no wasteful by-catch.

One of the things that has always been of interest to me is, if an industry is dependent upon a limited resource (public) should that industry be allowed to jeopardize that resources and then ask for someone else to help pay to help them out?

I would like to know what you think of the statements one page 1& 2 like “declining catches�, “low fish returns�, “improving fish runs and fishery management�, “government subsides�... I have been told that this is a great example of management... but it seems buy their own right-up that they don't have it right...

It's about sustainability and no waste... an abandoned or lost net continues to kill fish... a lost hock may only impact the fish that stole it.

Anyway… sorry if I bothered you… Tight Lines

Peace the tow away truck. Even if the car is parked on your driveway they have the power to do the same. The same thing happens to your car it gets crushed or sold at auction if worth a bit.

Do you want me to bring a council camera van with me???? :lol:

Got to laugh a TV program hired a car that was not fit to be on the road altho the owner said it was. They took it to independent inspectors who said it was just a write off. So the guys took the car to the crushers, had it crushed and then returned the crushed car and told him what they had done.

Oh by the way if police or council crush your car you are responsible for the bill.the buyer has major problems with the vehicle, the
consumer can request that the dealer fix the problem or refund the purchase price of the
car. If the dealer refuses, that may be a violation of the consumerÂ's implied warranty of

In these cases, the consumer can first file a complaint with the Attorney GeneralÂ's
Office or the Better Business Bureau. However, if that fails to re
