Town of Smithers – Skeena Sockeye Gill Netting

Here is a letter from the Smithers Town Council to DFO regarding late season Skeena gillnetting. It is good timing as another small bump of sockeye showed up at Tyee Index the last few days.

Maybe letters like this, along with the noise we generated in protest of the openings, will make DFO think twice about any more openings. Let’s hope!
