Setnetters share in king conservation effort

Email

Officials are hoping an emergency order made Tuesday will counterbalance another one issued Friday concerning the management of Kenai River king salmon escapement.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game recently decided to prohibit bait in the Kenai River beginning Monday in the face of slumping king salmon escapement numbers.

The bait prohibition came a week before the season closes and the decision drew criticism from some sport fishing interests.
