Giessel Eyes Fish Allocations as #1 Priority

We recently caught up with State Senator Cathy Giessel, who outlined some of her top priorities. Top of the list for her district: fishing.


Sen. Giessel(R-S. Anchorage): “I’m watching to see what kind of allocation decisions are made. You know, last year of course, the set netters were basically shut out. I see that they are closing some personal use fishery further south from my district, but nevertheless. So, I’m just waiting to see how the runs are and how they allocate things from sport to personal use to drift to set.”


We asked Giessel what kind of expectations she has for 2013.


Sen. Giessel (R-S. Anchorage): “No body gets everything they want, and we all have to realize that. This is a limited resource, but to me, it’s important that there’s some fairness and some scientific rationale.”
