            A study released this fall by the McDowell Group shows a significant impact on the state's salmon harvest by Alaska's many hatcheries. The study was conducted on behalf of the Prince William Sound Aquaculture Corporation, which operates five hatcheries in the sound and Copper River region.

            This last season, Prince William Sound fish accounted for 30 percent of the statewide salmon harvest, with a total worth of $317 million. Labor income alone accounted for $67 million, while creating 2,750 jobs in more than 30 communities. The study also shows that $1.8 million in fish tax went to the state and $1 million in revenue was collected by local governments.

            Prince William Sound Aquaculture general manager Dave Reggiani said in a written statement that the hatcheries are critical to the sustainability of jobs and strong local economies.

            Soon after the McDowell report came out, the state's largest fishermen's group, the United Fishermen of Alaska, came out in favor of the hatcheries. Mark Vinsel is the UFA's executive director. He agrees that hatchery runs benefit all user groups who target salmon.
