SCS supports Southeast Alaska’s Salmon Trollers

The Sitka Conservation Society condemns the recent decision from Judge Richard Jones to uphold the magistrate’s recommendation to shut down Southeast Alaska’s king salmon troll fishery this summer. We support our small boat fishing families and fishing communities across Southeast Alaska and believe that the Wild Fish Conservancy’s lawsuit is irresponsible and arbitrary in its targeting of hook and line fishermen, and devastating to our communities.
