Fish Board Asks State to Be Aware of Mining Operations

The state Fish Board was willing to write a letter, but it backed away from recommending the state Legislature make the Kvichak and Nushagak river drainages into a salmon refuge.  The letter to the state government will urge it to be aware of the peril an open pit copper mine such as the proposed Pebble Project could pose to fisheries there.
