Murkowski: Knowledge, Research Key to Salmon Fisheries Future

WASHINGTON, DC –Senator Lisa Murkowski today thanked Governor Sean Parnell for the 5 year/$30 million Chinook Salmon Research Initiative he unveiled in Kenai, saying:

“We were all deeply troubled by this summer’s salmon runs, not only for the short-term struggles it caused, but also for the long-term unanswered questions it raised.  We can’t fully deal with the issues we may be facing without hard data and science to guide our thinking.  I worked to restore millions in the 2013 Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations bill for fishery stock assessments and salmon recovery. I’m glad that Governor Parnell is joining forces to get answers and guide us towards a future of sustainable, productive fisheries.”
