Concern over sea otter impacts on commercial fisheries featured prominently in Petersburg’s borough assembly meeting last night. A group of local fishermen urged the assembly to support legislation that would pay a bounty for sea otters that are lawfully killed. The assembly members had been silent on the matter at their previous meeting and they were still not willing to get behind the bounty legislation this time around. Instead, they voted to create an ad-hoc committee that’s tasked with drafting a different resolution on the otter issue.
