Murkowski Responds to Resignation of Alaska Salmon Adversary

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Senator Lisa Murkowski today responded to the news that Kerry Coughlin, Regional Director for the controversial Marine Stewardship Council, resigned amid an ongoing battle over its claims that Alaska wild salmon is not sustainable:

"These have been a rough couple of years of dealing with MSC from an Alaskan perspective. I can only hope that new leadership may bring a more reasoned approach and added scientific rigor to their work. This is an organization that began its work in Alaska as a valued partner, but more recently has taken on a confrontational and adversarial attitude toward the same fisheries that helped it get its start."
