For Immediate Release: March 22, 2006

       Mike Hudson, President SBCSFA, (510) 528-6575 (h), (510)

       Fishermen stage rally at Pacific Fisheries Management Council  

WHAT: Sport, commercial and tribal fishermen and their families,  
fishing business owners, and other salmon advocates will join to  
rally for real solutions to salmon recovery. Up and down the West  
Coast, fishermen and fishing communities are being hurt by the  
general failure of the federal government’s salmon recovery efforts.  
Now, the administration is seeking to further limit -- and even  
eliminate -- tribal, sport and commercial fishing as the “solution”  
to dwindling Klamath River salmon runs. This policy unfairly targets  
fishermen while ignoring both sound science and sound economics. It  
is time for the federal government to step up and address the real  
causes of salmon decline, including the lethal impact of dams and  
habitat destruction, and focus on real solutions to protect and  
enhance our livelihoods, our communities and our way of life.

WHERE:  Outside the Flamingo Hotel, 2777 4th St., Santa Rosa, CA

WHEN:  Tuesday March 28 at 5 p.m.
