This past year the Shellfish Conservation Committee has been working very hard to come up with solutions to keep the Medomak River productive. In the 2005-2006 season we are trying something a little different. We are hoping to increase our shellfish license fees to buy seed for the river in hopes of increasing production. Our seeding practices have slowly been increased by the harvesters who have participated in the conservation days. We hope in the future there will be more participation and enthusiasm by harvesters and the community. We need support for the new ideas produced by the Shellfish Conservation Committee and we also need new ideas from you. We know that sometimes change can be a little hard to swallow, but we need to do all that we can to help our river produce for future generations.
