From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Lower Kuskokwim River
Type: Subsistence fish closed period
On 6/20/12, starting at about 1100 hours, a joint enforcement effort between Alaska Wildlife Troopers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officers was conducted on the Lower Kuskokwim River. During the course of the effort 33 citations were written, 21 nets were seized and 1,100 pounds of salmon were seized. All offenses were for subsistence salmon fishing during a closed period and subsistence fishing with illegal gear. The seized salmon were donated to local charities. All of the contacts made during this effort were nonconfrontational.
