Angoon’s village corporation is petitioning the federal government to take control of a major salmon fishery in Southeast Alaska. Kootznoowoo Incorporated says state management has favored the commercial seine fleet over the needs of subsistence users in the western Admiralty Island community, and the corporation wants the federal government to assert authority over marine waters. That’s never been done before in Alaska, but the federal Subsistence board will consider the issue this spring. As Matt Lichtenstein reports, the results could have broad implications.
