fish Traps Arc Less
Detrimental Than Seines
? \i
(Continued from Page 1.)
rap was far superior to any other |
ncthod of catching fish for it kept ,
hem alive and fresh until removed to
je taken to the cannery, while the gill ,
let und the seine killed them. It was
ihowed that seine operators kept their (
,'ish before delivered so very long on ,
iccasions that the fish were not fit to
je packed but the canners were com- (
gelled to use them and sell the pack at j
i loss. ,
Mr. Forbes 'said that he had been in ,
he fish business for twenty years and |
ifter using all the methods was of the
opinion that the trap was the only ,
right method from every point of view,
.'or sanitary reasons, for economic rea
sons, and for the preservation of the
!ish. He was of the opinion that if the
law was enforced again.'t taking fish
it the mouths of spawning streams by
seine men and by gill net operators and
the vicious practice of hooking them
In the streams where they had gone
to spawn, that there would be little
tlanger of depletion of the fish supply.
He said that he was in favor of a
closed season that should be rigidly
enforced and of a larger number of
government hatcheries. He had a fine
site for a hatchery but rather than be
subject to the charge of making fraud
ulent returns of fry released in lieu of
license tax preferred to pay the tax.
He was still in favor of paying tax
and of the government attending to
the hatcheries. Mr. Forbes said that
he was also in favor of an inspector be
ing appointed for each cannery.
The Excursion Inlet people repre
sented by Mr. Forbes have 17 traps in
the Icy Straits section and $100,000
invested in traps which require an ex
penditure of about fifty thousand dol
lars yearly in upkeep. They paid
$4,000 in tax on last season's output.
If the traps were abolished they would
certainly have to close down.
A statement from John Van Aspereti
was read by Chairman Svindseth set
ting forth that Van Asperen worked
in Icy Straits and Cross Sound and
Lynn Canal during the summer of 1912
Van Asperen had seen many young
salmon crushed and thrown away from
the traps because too small to be of
use to the canners: the few salmon
that do get clear of the traps and
reached as far as the Chilkat and
Chilkoot rivers near their spawning
grounds were hooked mostly by In
dians and brought to the canneries for
canning. The cannery people, he al
leged. bought the fish to keep the In
dians from complaining about the
traps.
C. J. Alexander, of the Hoonah Pack
ing Company said that he had been iif
the fishing business for 24 years and
had used every known appliance for
the taking of fish. Mr. Alexander's
views fitted into those of Mr. Forbes
exactly. And his remarks so far as
argument go were practically a repe
tition of the gentleman who preceded
him. He, however, gave some very
interesting historical facts bearing on
the fishing industry around Icy Straits
and Lynn Canal points. He admitted
that the salmon may have been de
pleted some in the Chilkat and Chil
koot rivers, but charged it to violations
of the law around the natural spawning
grounds and the lack of propogation by
hatcheries. He is also in favor of a
closed season, more hatcheries, inspec
tion. and a rigid enforcement of the
law.
There were in icy siraus <u me
present time about fifty traps, of
which his company owned four. If
the bill became a law and was enforced
it meant that Mr. Alexander's cannery
could not operate. There was no pos
sibility of the canneries getting the
necessary supply of fish without the
traps. His company had invested in
their plant $100,000 which would be|
entirely confiscated if the bill became
a law.
