Fair Prices for Bristol Bay Permitholders

Bristol Bay Permitholders were paid .50 cents per pound for sockeye salmon after fishing the 2015 season on an "open fish ticket."   This has been described as a "going home" price, but early sales of sockeye salmon support a much greater price.  Sales data indicate $3.12/lb for the 4 to 6 lb market, and $2.57/lb for the 2 to 4 lb fish.  Historically the base price for Bistol Bay sockeye has been approximately 37 - 38% of wholesale frozen H&G prices. 

Pursuant to Sec. 16.10.280 if at least one-third of the registered commercial fishermen dispute the 2015 base "going home" price area we can show the Department of Fish and Game that a representative from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development should intervene as mediator.
