Parnell should make Taku River a priority

Thanks for the Juneau Empire article last week discussing the Taku River and its contribution to Juneau's sport fishing. Taku River salmon account for about 90 percent of our spring king catch, 25 percent of sport-caught kings during the rest of the season and one third of the local coho harvest. The Taku is the most productive river in Southeast. Its wild salmon support hundreds of jobs and provide millions of dollars in revenue to Southeast Alaska.

"We're taking part in a coast to coast commemoration of The National Tree Trust's astounding milestone - 10 million trees planted across the United States since 1990," said See, urban and community forestry coordinator for Alaska's Department of Natural Resources.
