Wild and loopy legislators in Alaska – a state that banned net-pen fish farming in 1989 partially due to fears a number of the fish would possibly escape the pens and intrude with wild fish – now need to enable Alaskans to begin their very own salmon farms or what some in Alaska want to name “ranches.”

State Reps. Mike Cronk, Sarah Vance, and George Rauscher have proposed a regulation that might enable “a professional individual” to acquire a “fisheries rehabilitation allow” from the Alaska Division of Fish and Recreation authorizing her or him to “take away anadromous or freshwater finfish from the water of the state, accumulate gametes and fertilize and incubate eggs taken from the fish, and place the fertilized or incubated eggs, larvae, or unfed fry in the identical water of the state.”
