From KMXT in Kodiak, it's the Alaska Fisheries Report!
May 16: Coming up this week, Copper River opens, Togiak opens, Kodiak is a little slow and they’re done in Seymour Canal. Plus, why does the largest CDQ group want to get even bigger? The Alaska Fisheries Report was made possible with contributions from KCHU’s Tony Gorman in Valdez, KSKA’s Ellen Lockyer in Anchorage, KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KFSK’s Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg, and KUCB’s Stephanie Joyce in Unalaska.
May 09: Coming up this, we look westward for our fishy news. In Togiak, the only thing missing is the herring, while just around the corner there’s renewed interest in Kuskokwim Bay herring. Fishermen in Quinhagak are doing their part to preserve the might king salmon, and a small processor in Unalaska is going world-wide. It was made possible with the contributions of KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KYUK’s Sophie Evan in Bethel and KUCB’s Stephanie Joyce in Unalaska.
May 02: Coming up this week, harvest restrictions are expected for the Yukon River, but the Kuskokwim River may see more salmon going to fishermen. The latest EPA assessment claims a large mine in Bristol Bay would affect salmon habitat and the future of the state’s film tax program. All that coming up, on the Alaska Fisheries Report.
