Posted: Friday, June 22, 2012
State and federal authorities seized 1,100 pounds of salmon from Alaska Native fishermen this week, The Anchorage Daily News reports.
Salmon is running low on the Lower Kuskokwim River. The
Association of Village Council Presidents
wants the state to declare a disaster in the region.
"They're getting depressed and it's getting to be a crisis situation, because they're not going to have any food," AVCP President Myron Naneng told the paper.
Misdemeanor citations were issued to 33 fishermen.
