Alaska Fisheries Report — May 28, 2020



A COVID-19 mystery in Valdez — A Peter Pan Seafoods worker tested positive for the virus, even though he had been in state for a month, completed a two-week quarantine and not left the city of Valdez. Officials aren’t sure how he got it.

Also, Alaska’s fishing charters are suffering this summer, as travel restrictions and pandemic worry put a damper on tourism.

And finally, environmentalists in Bristol Bay are concerned the Trump administration is taking advantage of the pandemic to advance projects like Pebble Mine.

A big thank you to all the listeners of the Alaska Fisheries Report and to all the radio stations that air our program.
