Gillnetters association to host preseason informational meeting

Posted: Sunday, March 15, 2009

JUNEAU - Southeast Alaska's Regional Seafood Development Association and United Southeast Alaska Gillnetters Association will co-host an preseason informational meeting for all Juneau gillnetters who want to learn more about current opportunities and issues related to Southeast Alaska's gillnet fishery, including the upcoming self-assessment vote in June. The meeting will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. March 25 at DIPAC, 2697 Channel Drive.

There also will be a discussion led by Southeast Alaska's RSDA about the upcoming gillnet self-assessment vote in June, which all Southeast gillnet permit holders will receive ballots for starting in April. This meeting will be a chance to learn more about Southeast Alaska's RSDA and ways that it can help Southeast gillnetters get more for their salmon and also cut their operating costs. Southeast Alaska's RSDA is a fishermen-led organization that works for Southeast's fishermen, so ideas and suggestions are encouraged.

All Juneau gillnetters and other interested parties are welcome to attend. Free snacks and refreshments will be provided.
