Not enough

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Monday, August 19, 2002

Being a salmon fisherman, I was recently obliged to accept a NMFS data collection contractor onto my small boat for a 48-hour gillnet opening. The law provides penalties for refusal to comply. I have worked as a fisheries observer for both state and federal agencies in the past. All due respect to the biologist assigned to my vessel, but $50 compensation for three days is unacceptable.
