Troopers say seiner was too near salmon stream

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Gustavus
Type: Seine within 500 yards of salmon stream
On 10/6/11 Sven Stroosma, 46, of Washington state, was cited by Hoonah Wildlife Troopers for commercial purse seining within 500 yards of a salmon stream. Troopers contacted Stroosma onboard the F/V Voyager just south of Tenakee Inlet on 7/27/11 while his power skiff was only 380 feet from the mouth of South Passage Point Creek, which is listed as an anadromous salmon stream. Stroosma is scheduled for court on 10/26/11 in Hoonah.

  1. Yea that guy is not even bad. Why don't they go after the guys that are robbing Lisianski Inlet and Slocam arm constantly? and have been doing it for years. Funny how the stream mouth is full one day of salmon and the next day it is empty. Nope they are not in the river and no they are not floating dead out the mouth. Heck even the bioligist seems to be confused. WERE DID THEY GO. In the end it hurts all the legal guys and their futurs.
