UPPER COOK INLET COMMERCIAL FISHING ANNOUNCEMENT No. 29 EMERGENCY ORDER NUMBER 2S-29-16

August 6th, 2016

Upper Cook Inlet Commercial Fishing Announcement No. 29 opens commercial salmon fishing with drift gillnets in the Expanded Kenai and Expanded Kasilof sections of the Upper Subdistrict and in the Anchor Point Section of the Lower Subdistrict (Figure 1) from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 6, 2016. The passage rate of sockeye salmon into the Kenai and Kasilof rivers is proceeding at a rate greater than that needed to assure optimum escapement levels. In order to reduce the rate of passage and harvest surplus sockeye salmon bound for the Kenai and Kasilof rivers, fishing time in the above-described area is warranted.
