Alaska Fisheries Report – Sept. 13, 2018


Are floating fish farms a possibility off Alaska? A Trump administration proposal threatens Alaska’s ban on fish farming.

It’s not official until it signed, but it appears the U.S. and Canada have reached a tentative agreement on salmon.

Despite needing to destroy two creeks, Donlin Gold now has the fish habitat permits it needs to build its controversial pit mine in the YK Delta region.

And finally, a look at where fishermen live.


We had help from Jacob Resneck at Coast Alaska. Teresa Cotsirilos at KYUK Bethel. And from Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.

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.
