ANCHORAGE - Commercial salmon fishermen participating in the Chignik co-op report that they are better off financially, according to a University of Alaska Anchorage research report. The Chignik fishery last season switched to a system in which most of the 100 seiners stopped competing against one another and agreed to fish cooperatively. The new system allowed many of the Chignik fishermen to mothball most of their boats and deliver fresher fish to the docks for higher prices with less expense.
Alaska's commercial salmon industry can thrive only if it restructures, a University of Alaska Anchorage study concluded.
