ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Gov. Sean Parnell and Alaska Department of Fish and Game Commissioner Cora Campbell say a team of top researchers and scientists is tackling the problem of Alaska's disappearing king salmon.
Parnell and Campbell announced Friday that the task of the team is three-fold: evaluate king salmon stocks, find possible reasons for the decline and make recommendations.
Poor returns have resulted in no fishing for kings in several major Alaska rivers.
Parnell wants the team's report and recommendations by fall.
