A bill was introduced to ban set <br /> netting in Cook Inlet which was initiated by sport fishermen and was a very political topic. The <br /> group met with United Fishermen of Alaska and the Tyonek Tribal Conservation District.He noted <br /> Andy Mezirow was appointed to the State of Alaska Board of Fisheries. There would be an open <br /> house for the opening of the Port Graham Hatchery later in the year. <br /> Paul Paquette said it was getting close to April and residents of Lowell Point were getting <br /> worried that the sewage lagoon dredge and disposal project was not going to get done before the <br /> summer season began. He drove by the Seward Marine Industrial Center (SMIC) lagoon and it <br /> appeared it was getting drained down. Paquette was concerned SMIC would be the first priority in <br /> the sewage lagoon dredge and disposal project and hoped council would encourage the Lowell Point <br /> Lagoon to be dredged first. <br />
