It is a bit ironic, but the Salmon Policies Alliance op-ed piece (published above and last week in other publications) states, "? the Kenai River is not at risk or in crisis ?" Really? The very next day, the Kenai River and the East Side Set Net (ESSN) fishery were closed for fishing due to a dismally low return of Kenai kings. While there is a big run of red salmon, the Kenai kings caught by the ESSN has put the Kenai king run in jeopardy.
