The Parnell Administration's Fish Habitat Policies are a Recipe For Disaster

Recipe for Disaster ADWild salmon define what it means to be Alaskan. They feed us, they drive our local economies, and they shape our cultures.  That’s why thousands of Alaskans have signed our petition to protect wild Alaska salmon habitat.

Governor Parnell has promised to "never trade one resource for another." Yet he's systematically unraveling the habitat protections needed to ensure our wild salmon endure for current and future generations. If the State of Alaska won't abide by the Clean Water Act, it's time to ask the EPA to protect our wild salmon runs-Click here to write to the EPA.

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute touts the sustainability of Alaska fisheries management, and proudly proclaims: “Alaska sets the standard for precautionary resource management." But the Parnell Administration has spearheaded the demise of the Alaska Coastal Management Program, refused to deem salmon streams "unsuitable" for coal strip mining in the upper Chuitna watershed, refused to ban coal strip mining in salmon streams, and refused to provide Alaskans with public notice when fish habitat permits – known as “Title 16 permits” – are processed.

Once-proud salmon runs in Europe, New England and the Pacific Northwest have fallen to the phenomenon of the "death by a thousand cuts."  Today, the Parnell Administration is repeating these basic habitat management mistakes. We can and must do better.
