King salmon are filtering into just about every corner of the state. The Alaska Board of Forestry will consider the ADF&G’s Chinook Research Plan during their meeting later this month. Marty Freeman with the Division of Forestry said they’ll be hearing a presentation on the Research Plan.
Freeman: “So the Board is interested in knowing what’s happening with the fish research, knowing whether there’s anything that we can learn from that research and also finding out if there are any opportunities to look for chances to get research done that would be helpful in terms of assessing forestry and the interaction between forestry and fish habitat.”
Freeman said the main task of the Board is to oversee the Forest Practises Act, which already covers many of the forestry/fishery issues.
