Although it’s nearly December there is a group of people in the region who are focused on salmon, specifically the future of the King salmon run on the Kuskokwim River. The Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Group met today (Friday) in Bethel. The group is made up of representatives up and down the river. Also at the table were several state and federal managers. They were discussing the State’s new recommendation to change the King salmon escapement goals or the amount of fish needed to spawn for the run to be sustainable.
