KODIAK, Alaska – The crew of a Kodiak-based MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter forward deployed to Cordova rescued four men from a liferaft three miles south of Montague Island in the Gulf of Alaska May 19, 2010, after their vessel, the 47-foot Juneau-based Cape Spencer, began taking on water and sank. The men were in good condition and taken to Seward. U.S. Coast Guard photo by Air Station Kodiak
Coming up this week: All fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico have close due to the B-P oil well blow-out; an Alaskan fisherman who lived through the Exxon Valdez spill reflects on the Gulf spill; and is Copper River really Alaska’s first salmon fishery of the year? We had help this week from Fish Radio’s Laine Welch in Kodiak, KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KCAW’s Ed Ronco in Sitka, Deck Boss Blogger Wesley Loy, and KSTK’s Tony Gorman in Wrangell.
