Town Hall

Vance Takes Heat Over Tutka Bay Hatchery Plan

Apr 30, 2021

A bill to save the Tutka Bay Lagoon Hatchery from closing got a hearing this week in the House Fisheries Committee. HB52, sponsored by Homer Rep. Sarah Vance and co-sponsored by the peninsula’s other two house members, would declare the hatchery a “compatible use” in Kachemak Bay State Park.
    State Parks is seeking to force the hatchery to close, as outlined in its most recent management plan.
    But Wednesday night, Vance held a virtual town hall meeting where she said she’s been having conversations on what it would take to save the hatchery.
