Sign the Petition
If you're reading this blog I know that you are a sportfisherman. A link was sent to me about a petition to take a serious look at the incidental bycatch of halibut and chinook salmon in the Alaska trawl fishery. If you care about the future of sportfishing in Alaska, click here and sign the petition.
I am not against commercial fishing and believe it should not be shut down but this particular method needs to be modified so there is less bycatch kill of non-targeted species. If the trawlers are not held accountable there will be no change.
Let your voice be heard.
