From KMXT in Kodiak, it's the Alaska Fisheries Report!
February 27:Coming up this week, Alaska gets $21-million for 2012’s king salmon disaster, Senator Murkowski wonders if something more than public health might be behind China’s geoduck ban, and how might this warm winter affect baby salmon all snug in their streams? We had help from APRN’s Liz Ruskin in Washington, DC, KDLG’s Dave Bendinger in Dillingham, KTOO’s Casey Kelly in Juneau, and KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in Ketchikan.
February 20: Coming up this week, reaction is still coming in from the Alaska Board of Fisheries decisions made earlier this month in Anchorage, fines are levied for mishandling fish waste, and Alaska sockeye turns out to be a popular whole food. We had help from KTNA’s Phillip Manning in Talkeetna, KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, and KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.
February 13: Coming up this week, bad news for Cook Inlet commercial fishermen is coming out of the Alaska Board of Fisheries meeting, the stormy weather caused a number of injuries on a factory trawler out west, and, wait for it: Magnetic Salmon. We had help from KDLL’s Shaylon Cochran in Kenai, KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal and Annie Ropeik in Unalaska, and KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak.
