There will be workshops about the gillnet observer program on Nov. 14th in Petersburg and Nov 15th in Wrangell. A letter will be going to all permit holders with the details. The intent is still to implement the observer program in Districts 6 & 8 in 2012 using leased boats as remote platforms to observe from. The intent will be to observe approx. 7-1/2 % of the boat days in the district.
