seafood industry as  a result of the credits.  A request was                                                                    
made  regarding foregone  harvests  a few  years  back by  a

available. The  fishermen came forward and  inquired that if                                                                    
the herring  fishery had a  market they  believed processors                                                                    
would  have the  additional  incentive  needed to  encourage                                                                    
them  to provide  processing capacity  for both  herring and

Herring  had previously  been processed  for either  bait or

dumped. The  state thought the  carcasses could  be valuable

which showed  a very  strong desire  for another  protein to

would extend the  tax credit and add herring  to the seafood

Co-Chair Austerman reported an  additional item contained in                                                                    
the bill  pertaining to byproduct.  He indicated  that there                                                                    
was a  strong desire to see  the waste stream turned  into a                                                                    
usable   product.  Currently,   efforts   were  focused   on                                                                    
producing  a  concentrated protein  in  the  form of  a  dry                                                                    
powder. He pointed  out that over time all  of the fisheries                                                                    
in the State of Alaska  would require 100 percent retention.                                                                    
At present, millions of pounds  of product were being dumped                                                                    
in  the  ocean.  The  product was  not  economically  viable                                                                    
because of either  being too small or the  wrong species. He

direction of  100 percent retention within  the following 10                                                                    
years.  He anticipated  pressure being  placed on  Alaska to                                                                    
follow  suit. He  expressed his  desire for  Alaska to  move                                                                    
forward with  implementing 100  percent retention.  He posed                                                                    
the question about what to  do with byproduct resulting from                                                                    
commercial fishing.  He suggested either product  be brought

Representative Austerman continued to  speak to the bill. He

Vice-Chair  Fairclough wondered  about fishing  tax credits.                                                                    
Specifically, she  asked if the  state was holding  down the

Representative  Austerman thought  that the  committee would

Vice-Chair  Fairclough mentioned  that over  the last  eight

Co-Chair  Meyer appreciated  Senator Fairclough's  comments.                                                                    
He was under  the impression the state was  going to attempt
