Alaska Fishing Rule

Recommended Posts

Critical infrastructure includes: “Fishing, including persons engaged in subsistence fishing and in the fishing industry including the fisherman, processors, guides, and transporters of the fish as well of those under contract with the fisherman, processors, guides, and transporters for provisioning,” the state has said.

 

New York State officials have over reacted to the virus situation. Personal fishing or commercial sale of fish is essential use. The closing of ramps, docks or marinas can be handled by the mask and separation directives.

A week ago as a business owner I took part in a North American webinar for relief options available for fishing interests.  The person presenting for British Columbia stated they had a big problem as commercial fishing was considered “essential” so they could operate their boats-however the fish processors have no market for the fresh catch and were not buying catch so they had no income.  It was also noted that West Coast guides were also effected as no clients or visitors were traveling or flying.  The discussion was these groups could possibly be better positioned for relief if they were deemed non-essential.  Roughly 140 business took part so one can see the wide ranging and critical effect to many interests with this virus beyond what is going on locally.

With the nationwide restaurant closings seafood sales are down 75 percent, 3.5 billion dollars sales loss for the seafood industry. If you really want a fish fry, you will need to cook your own catch. Perch are being caught from the Buffalo small boat harbor ramp and the Cattaraugus Creek State ramp on weekends. Miller’s Bait store as well as Dave’s bait store were open now.
