Bristol Bay fishermen support fleet reduction, study says

According to the seafood development association, which supports market, product and infrastructure improvements in the bay, a majority of responding permit holders are in favor of a buyback. At the time of their summer newsletter release, the returns showed that 74 percent of them supported a buyback program. A total of 81 percent supported the association’s continued investigation into a potential buyback, and what the costs and impacts to communities and economies would look like. [email protected]
