New agreement will mean fewer Salmon for Southeast commercial fisherman

A new pacific salmon treaty agreement will mean fewer king salmon for commercial fishing fleets in southeast Alaska and British columbia. The bilateral agreement, announced yesterday is a 10-year extension of the existing treaty, set to expire at the end of this year. It lays out fishing quotas, research and overall management of all species of salmon in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and Canada.
