2012 Alaska Chinook (King Salmon) Fishery Disaster
Is the 2012 Alaska Chinook Salmon Fishery Disaster [link to www.adfg.alaska.gov] related to the March 11, 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster? What do you think?

What are the economic impacts of low Chinook returns?

Commercial fishing for Chinook salmon on the Yukon and Kuskokwim, which is an important source of income in those regions, was closed. While the Chinook fishery on the Yukon generated an average annual harvest value of $1.5 million over the preceding ten years, this year the fishery was closed and the revenue from the fishery was $0. In order to conserve Chinook salmon, commercial harvest of available chum salmon was restricted on the Yukon. On the Kuskokwim, both chum and sockeye salmon harvests were restricted and the overall value generated by the commercial salmon fishery fell to less than 50% of the average seen in the preceding five years. Subsistence fisheries on both the Yukon and the Kuskokwim Rivers were restricted such that the amounts of Chinook necessary for subsistence may not have been met.

King salmon fisheries in major Alaska watersheds have been declared failures by the U.S. Department of Commerce, making commercial fishermen eligible for disaster relief.

Acting U.S. Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank announced the disaster declaration Thursday for the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers, flowing into the Bering Sea, and for Cook Inlet, including the Kenai River.

"Some Cook Inlet salmon fisheries have experienced revenue losses of up to 90 percent of their historical average during the 2012 season, seriously hurting local economies that are dependent on fishing," Blank said in her announcement.

The Yukon River is North America's third-longest river. Villages along the Yukon and Kuskokwim depend on king salmon, also known as chinooks, for both commercial sales and subsistence needs, Blank said.
