Commentary: Commercial herring seining and subsistence are my family traditions

This letter is in regard to the upcoming Sitka herring fishery in 2019. There are a few intentions in taking the time to write this. I understand much of the wording involved here is best to include a bit of care so as not to be mistaken or misunderstood. Plainly, I’d like to point out this: Our chance of harvesting the allotted quota for 2019 is very slim. I see an importance in writing this letter to explain why. Maybe it’s best to introduce myself before I continue. My name is Chuck Skeek. I’ve been a participant in the fishery for nearly 30 years. I grew up in the fishery under my father Leonard Skeek.  >click to read<09:50
