Of the remain fish, the gill-net fishery will take about half and the sportfishery will take about half. The gillnet fishery has historically taken about 25% of the second run of Kenai kings as a by-product of the. 71 Decrease the Lower Cook Inlet winter saltwater king salmon bag and possession limit to one fish, and establish an annual limit of two king salmon. 72 Eliminate the third Saturday in August (late-run coho) from the youth-only fishery in the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon. To Maw, that means managing to escapement goals. “You still have to take those fish down to that escapement value. If there are boats, that dictates one fishing pattern, if there’s , that would dictate a much higher level of fishing in order to meet escapement goals,” he said. This ticketed event was set to coincide with our semi-annual UFA fall board meeting at the Hotel Captain Cook from September 26thth, and also the ASMI All-Hands meeting and Great Alaska Seafood Cookoff from Sept 29th- Oct 1st. It was an honor to recognize a number of individuals for their service to the seafood industry in Alaska.

The Alaska salmon fishery is a managed fishery that supports the sustainable annual harvest of five species of wild Pacific Salmon for commercial fishing, sport fishing, subsistence by Alaska Native communities, and personal use by local residents.

The salmon harvest in Alaska is the largest in North America and represents about 80% of the total wild-caught catch, with. Cook Inlet Salmon Management. Collapse. Collapse. Posts; Latest Activity. Search.

The Alaska Fishing season has arrived. As usual we have started the season pursuing both king salmon and halibut in nearby Cook Inlet and also king salmon on the Kasilof River.

Both of these fisheries have seen success so far with the salt water option obviously being the more predictable pursuit. Out in the Inlet, other salmon stocks now pay the price for this sort of dominant stock management. Scientifically embarrassing. Here is how Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologist Pat Sheilds described one of the weaker stocks of salmon – those northern Inlet coho – in a report to the state Board of Fisheries this year.

"Unpredictable" is the word for Alaska's salmon season. By LAINE WELCH. Septem Saturday AM (SitNews) - “Unpredictable” is the way salmon managers describe Alaska’s salmon season, with “very, very interesting” as an aside.

The salmon fishery is near its end, and a statewide catch of nearly million salmon is only six. As ofthere were hundreds of stocks of chum salmon in Alaska. Some stocks are in decline, while others are steady or increasing. None are listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Review of Salmon Escapement Goals in Southeast Alaska, ; West Coast: Two populations of chum salmon are listed as threatened under the ESA. The Cook Inlet fisheries-management problem is the problem of many Alaska salmon fisheries. Commercial fishing takes places where sometimes dozens of different stocks of salmon of multiple species mix together.

In such situations, intensive fishing can threaten the weakest stocks in pool. The problem is not unique to Alaska. Tuesday, Febru —The Board of Fisheries passed Proposal yesterday by a 6 – 1 action extended the Conservation Corridor concept through August. This was the Matanuska – Susitna Borough Fish and Wildlife Commission’s highest priority in seeking to pass a reasonable amount of Northern Cook Inlet salmon stocks Escapement goals for salmon stocks in lower Cook Inlet.

Also swimming with the Cook Inlet drainage sockeyes are some other Cook Inlet stocks (Chinooks, Coho, Chums, and Pinks). Of which some, are in stock of concern status or worse.

Kasilof sockeye returns have easily exceeded their escapement goals in the past several seasons and this has resulted in record commercial harvests of king salmon in the Kasilof district. Second, United Cook argued that Alaska was not properly managing the escapement of salmon in Cook Magnuson-Stevens Act requires.

Kodiak Sockeye Genetics Report; And with the exception of a few systems with their own unique production problems, Cook Inlet sockeye stocks are healthy, and in fact frequently supply surpluses.

12 allocated to some river production in Kodiak and that could skew the whole production curves for these systems and escapement goals. Several Cook Inlet Northern District king salmon stocks as well as Susitna sockeye are currently listed as stocks of concern by the Board of Fisheries. Discussion of salmon management is supposed to begin on the first day of the upcoming council meeting, April 4, and there will be opportunity for public comment at the meeting.

Access to harvestable surpluses of sockeye salmon is often limited by incidental harvest of Chinook salmon in the mixed-species gillnet fishery of Cook Inlet, Alaska, particularly in years of low Chinook abundance.

This is restricting economic opportunity and creating allocation conflict between user groups. Prior work quantified differences in migration depth of Chinook Author: David W. Welch, Aswea D.

During the last Board of Fisheries Upper Cook Inlet meeting inthe board changed the way kings are counted on the Kenai. Previously, an all fish count was used to set escapement goals. A useful historical summary of the development of the Cook Inlet salmon fisheries is available [4], as well as a number of recent sociological studies examining the conflict [5][6][7][8] [9].

Commercial salmon fishing boats congregate in the mouth of the Kenai River last summer. Redoubt Reporter For the United Cook Inlet Drift Association, the Upper Cook Inlet sockeye salmon run forecast may be tantamount to a declaration of economic disaster.

There are also chum, coho, and pink salmon escapement goals on for the Nushagak River and Chinook salmon goals for the Alagnak and Naknek rivers (Table 3), but in-season management is not used to help attain these goals (Baker et al.

Alaska's salmon season officially kicks off in a few weeks with runs of reds and kings at Copper River. State managers have put the plus boat fleet on notice he famous fishery will likely open.

The ADFG management decisions for the Upper Cook Inlet fisheries use a combination of different models including genetic stock identification (GSI), test fishing, in-river salmon sonar counts, analysis of commercial effort and harvest, salmon age composition studies, and mark-recapture studies (Barclay et al.,Shields and Dupuis, Cited by: 7.

Pink salmon returns are somewhat variable so far, but escapement goals appear to be achieved or within reach at most systems. Chum returns appear strong throughout the Lower Inlet, with a minor number of exceptions, and chum escapement to date looks very favorable at a majority of systems.

The objectives at Kasook Lake are to index, or possibly estimate, Sockeye Salmon escapement, and estimate age, sex and length composition.

Its always possible that the run is front loaded and will end up short of the escapement goals, which also holds true for the Kenai, so we will see how it shapes up.

This eroded into a series of legal battles that seek to bring federal oversight to a management program that has often failed Cook Inlet fishermen. This book contains a selection of papers presented during a special workshop on Complexity Science organized as part of the 9th International Conference on GIScience Expert researchers in the areas of Agent-Based Modeling, Complexity Theory, Network Theory, Big Data, and emerging methods of Analysis and Visualization for new types of data.

Sockeye returns have failed to meet minimum escapement goals for many of the past several years. The state sets those goals to ensure healthy returns in the future. Stephen Runyan, a fishing guide and employee at Three Rivers Fly and Tackle in Wasilla, said while northern Cook Inlet stocks are dwindling, Cook Inlet driftnetters are enjoying.Still the fishing closures and restrictions allowed enough salmon passage to meet or exceed many established escapement goals, notably Yukon River summer and fall chum salmon, Canadian border king salmon passage, Kuskokwim River king salmon, Copper River sockeye and king salmon, all sockeyes and cohos in Upper Cook Inlet, Kenai River late-run.The cook inlet problems stem from the fact that the two largest commercial fisheries, the Kenai and Kasilof, are in the lower cook inlet and catch many fish headed for the upper cook inlet where many salmon populations have crashed in recent years.

Still with these concerns Most of Alaska's salmon are sustainably fished.
