AEB mayor aims to combat loss of fishing permits to drug addiction

With an "alarming" loss of commercial salmon fishing permits in rural communities, Aleutians East Borough Mayor Alvin Osterback has an idea on reversing the "graying of the fleet," by allowing young fishermen to establish themselves with leadership experience on the water.

His plan also aims to combat the loss of fishing permits by drug addicts who inherit and then sell their fishing privileges in order to stay high. The plan to add a second name to salmon permits will ultimately require legislative approval. It has already been endorsed by a group representing local government officials.

"A whole generation of fishermen are missing because of drugs," said Osterback in an interview this week. Osterback is a Sand Point resident and lifetime salmon seiner.

"Some limited entry permit holders may be reluctant to permanently transfer a permit to any heirs currently dealing with addiction," according to his resolution. Too often, the permits are inherited and then sold to buy drugs, he said. To prevent that from happening, the permits are sold out of the local community.

Salmon permit prices can range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Osterback said communities in southwest Alaska have lost upwards of 80% of the permits originally issued when the limited entry system was created in the 1970s, and the same goes for halibut individual fishing quotas, he said.

The average age of a fisherman in Alaska is now 50, he said. Young fishermen who have three to five years of experience as the second name on the permit are more likely to make a good impression on a bank when applying for loans for boats and permits, he said.

One of the biggest obstacles new entrants wanting to pursue a career in fishing face is lack of capital and an established credit history to get started.

He envisions a mentorship period of between three and five years.

"Allowing an additional name to be listed would allow permit holders to mentor up-and-coming fishermen in the community and transition them into the fisheries," according to Osterback's resolution. "Allowing an additional name to be listed would eliminate the permit holder's fear of losing the permit."

Osterback wants the Alaska Municipal League to back his plan, a resolution to allow an additional name on limited entry permits. The second named person would not own the permit, but could run the boat and make deliveries half the time. Currently, the permit owner needs to be on the boat all the time.

Osterback said you can't know if a fisherman who might be a great crewmember has what it takes to be a captain and make critical decisions when the fish are running and the wind is blowing hard, unless that individual is running the show.

"The only way to find out is to turn them loose," and that becomes very obvious very fast after an individual has had sole responsibility for the boat, while the permit owner stays on the beach.

The "resolution in support of changing the transferability of limited entry salmon permits by allowing an additional name of the permit" was also approved at last year's conference of local government officials on Nov. 22 at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage, according to AML Executive Director Nils Andreassen. Bringing it back for another vote this year keeps the issue in the public eye, he said.

Osterback said the next step after AML is to find sponsorship for a bill when the state Legislature goes back to work in January.

Osterback said he's encountered some skepticism based on a mistaken view that the changes in permit transferability would allow someone to operate two salmon fishing permits at the same time, but that's not the case, despite concerns voiced earlier at the Southwest Alaska Municipal Conference.

"It's not a way to dupe the system and fish two permits," Osterback said.

Osterback said Washington state allows several names on a fishing permit, but Alaska now only allows one.
