Letter: RE: Dean River

With  2 dozen commercial gillnet and seine openings in area 8, it was time to voice some concern. Similar letters to other  fisheries managers and ministers were also sent off. Remember these  low value commercial fisheries targeting chum salmon  heavily impact highly valuable Dean river steelhead. Its has been estimated that  a sport caught  Dean river steelhead puts $1000 into the BC economy. The point to note here is that sport caught fish is released.
