            The chairman of the Alaska Board of Fisheries was reappointed yesterday (Wednesday) by Governor Sean Parnell. Vince Webster of King Salmon is wrapping up his first term on the board, and has been reappointed to a term expiring at the end of June 2013. Talkeetna's Thomas Kluberton is a new appointment made by the governor.

            Webster is a salmon setnetter in the Kvichak district in Bristol Bay, and a driftnetter in the Naknek district. In the off season, Webster is an equipment operator for the National Park Service, and previously worked as facilities and maintenance director for the Lake and Peninsula Borough School District.

            Kluberton is the innkeeper at the Fireweed Station Inn near Talkeetna. He served as a member of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough Assembly from 2006 to 2009, and served on the borough mayor's Sportsman's Committee during that time. He has also worked as an information systems and management consultant for the State of Alaska.

            What appears to be a shrinking population of caribou on Unimak Island has been raising alarm with subsistence hunters. As a measure to protect the herd, the Federal Subsistence Board has suggested closing the island to caribou hunting.

            Last week the Kodiak/Aleutians Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council met to review that and other federal subsistence management proposals.

According to long-time advisory council member Pat Holmes, the bull-cow ratio is low right now and mortality rates are very high. He said it's a problem that's been developing for several years.

The council however overturned the revocation and avoided setting a precedent.
