s not about fisherman against other natural resource extractors, it's the environmental community that gets in the way. The commercial fishermen of this state have always worked hand and hand with the logging and mining industry, sharing a common bond of survival. It's only when the environmentalist get involved that creates the problems, I have great faith in Gov. Murkowski's plan to remove the regulating of habitat out of ADF&G. My intelligence has been insulted when people suggest that fisherman don't care about habitat, in which is the life blood of our existence!
