Before the end of the legislative session, wildlife troopers in the Kenai area received a windfall they were not expecting. In capital projects bill, there was an extra $175 thousand dollar allocated for law enforcement of the fisheries in the Kenai area. The bill has been amended since it was proposed. One commercial setnetter said he's glad the final draft includes enforcement for more than just set netters. Robert Williams, of Cook Inlet Quality Seafoods said in a phone interview that as someone who is very involved in the fishing industry, he was surprised he hadn't heard a word of the increased funding. "we have lobbyists up there that watch these kinds of things. Nobody has seen hide nor hair of it," he said. Since the money was initially proposed, amendments were made to include fisheries like the Kenai River dipnetting under areas that will see increased enforcement. Alaska's dipnetting fisheries see thousands of visitors each summer. The city of Kenai sees more than anywhere else. City Manager Rick Koch says more enforcement money could help protect the fishery. Koch said, "we didn't ask for it. I'm pleased to see it. There are certainly areas that require additional attention." Wildlife Trooper Lt. Paul McConnell agrees. "I don't think the money was ever put there to single out one user group," McConnell said. "I think it was put there because someone has realized that the fishery peaked and the amount of people we have down during that short period of time and the amount of enforcement maybe could use a boost." The bill allocating the money won't be finalized until gets the governor's final approval.
