Commercial fishermen rally

Hard times for the Fort Bragg Fishing Fleet

A rally for commercial fishermen is scheduled for March 28th in Santa Rosa, California to "demand real solutions to salmon declines." The Pacific Fisheries Management Council meets at 7pm to hear public comments about the 2006 salmon season and the rally is intended to bring attention to the commercial fishermen up and down the west coast. This year's salmon season is in jeopardy because of declining fish runs in the Klamath River and a lot of fishermen could face financial ruin if the season is cancelled or cut short.

My hope is to cover the rally and post some video on the Streamscope site by the end of the week.
