Alaska Fisheries Report – Aug 2, 2018


Halibut prices are up slightly.

The Kuskokwim River system is meeting its goals for kings and chums and reds are running strong.

While in Bristol Bay the Nushagak River is open again following a vessel sinking.

Fish and Game Commissioner Sam Cotton gets an earful from fishermen in Kenai.

And deadlines are looming for those wanting to comment on tariffs with China.


We had help from Avery Lill KDLG in Dillingham, Anna Rose McArthur at KYUK in Bethel, and Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer. We also heard from Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio. And Jay Barrett who for many years produced The Alaska Fisheries Report, reported from KDLL in Kenai

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.
