Alaska Fisheries Report – Sept. 20, 2018


Passionate testimony from both sides is heard at public hearings on Ballot Measure 1, which is aimed at protecting fish habitat.

A new study hopes to discover the implications of hatchery pink salmon spawning with wild fish.

The man who was instrumental in financing initial efforts to stop the Pebble Mine has died.

And finally, consumers want earth-friendly fishing and see ocean pollution as the biggest threat to fish.


We had help from Emily Hofstaedter at KNOM in Nome. Elizabeth Harball and  Aaron Bolton with the Alaska energy Desk. We also had help from Liz Ruskin at Alaska Public Radio 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.
