            Three Kodiak fisheries activists gave the city council an earful at its last meeting, decrying the council's decision not to send a letter to a U.S. House committee in opposition of enacting catch shares in East Coast fisheries. A similar letter was sent by the Kodiak Island Borough, Aleutians East Borough and the city of King Cove.

 

            Stephen Taufen is with the Groundswell Fisheries Movement:

 

--          (Fish 1                         37 sec              "My question to you ... as friends of the court.")

 

            Rhonda Maker agreed that joining the East Coast lawsuit would send a message from Alaskan fishermen, and she urged the city to send a representative to the next North Pacific Fishery Council meeting in Sitka to speak out on proposed rockfish privatization in the Gulf of Alaska:

 

--          (Fish 2                         28 sec              "Joining that lawsuit ... leaving our city and our state.")

 

            Fisherman Shawn Dochtermann disputed figures showing Kodiak and its economy have improved in the wake of fisheries privatization:

 

--          (Fish 3                         40 sec              "If you look downtown ... a lobbyist comes up here and says.")

 

            Councilman Terry Haines pointed out that after gulf groundfish rationalization was turned back, the city did not collapse:

 

--          (Fish 4                         38 sec              "And you know when they ... you look at these programs.")

 

            The North Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting will be held from June 7 through 15th in Sitka.
