Says climate is primary driver of poor salmon returns
The North Pacific Fishery Management Council on Monday provided a motion that “acknowledges the Western Alaska salmon crisis and the impact it is having on culture and food security throughout the region.”
It adds that “science indicates climate as the primary driver” for the poor salmon returns.
That’s the likely reason that large trawl companies are using every opportunity to claim that their sector has a low carbon footprint.
“It’s lower than tofu!” boasted Stephanie Madsen on April 7 at an AK Resource Development Council breakfast presentation.
Madsen, who is executive director of the At-sea Processors Association and a former NPFMC chair also added: “I’m not quite sure why the anti-trawl voice is increasing in volume.”
