Alaska Fisheries Conservation Alliance Inc. – New Attack on Cook Inlet Setnetters

In a statement issued Nov. 8, KPFA said that acting under the guise of the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, the Kenai King Conservation Alliance and now the Alaska Fisheries Conservation Alliance, Penny has spent decades trying to reallocate king salmon caught in East Side setnets to in-river guides and lodge owners.” The commercial setnetters association also noted that 84 percent of the setnet permits for the Cook Inlet setnet fishery are owned by Alaska residents, and 80 percent of those Alaskans live on the Kenai Peninsula.
