Recommended 72-Hour Grace Period For Net Fishing In The Kuskokwim

May 27, 2016

The Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group has asked for a grace period on the current ban on 4-inch mesh nets the Kuskokwim.

The working group voted for a 72-hour exemption Thursday during a public teleconference and recommended to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game that the exemption occur this weekend on the Kuskokwim’s main channel.

Beverly Hoffman, Working Group Chair, talked with KYUK’s Adrian Wagner just minutes after the meeting.
