Alaska Fisheries Report – July 12, 2018



Lots of fish news this week. Unfortunately, much of it is not good.

First up, and this is a developing story so things could change, President Trump proposes a tariff on reprocessed fish coming from China that could signal big problems for Alaska’s seafood industry.

This news comes as a Chinese delegation is visiting the state.

We also take a look at Yukon River salmon, herring in Dutch Harbor, and dungeness crab.


We had help from Austin Fast at KDLG in Dillingham, Johanna Eurich at KYUK Bethel, Alanna Elder at KSFK in Anchorage, Laura Kraegel at KUCB in Dutch Harbor, and Daysha Eaton from KMXT in Kodiak.

Be safe fishing. We—and your family—wants you to come home safely.

As always a big thank you to everyone who helps make this program possible each week—including our listeners and all the radio stations that air our show.
