The Board of Fish meets next month to a packed agenda which covers everything from Chinook management in southeast to Bering Sea cod.
Salmon hatcheries are on the agenda as well and hatchery managers and stakeholders are preparing to defend themselves against earlier attacks.
A crowd of Sitkans turn to testify their support of the Yes for Salmon initiative.
And, finally, Crab stocks in the Bering Sea—king crab and Tanner are down, snow crab appear on the upswing.
We had help from Erin Slomski-Pritz from KCAW in Sitka and Laine Welch of Alaska Fish Radio.
Thanks to Waterbound of Kodiak for “Fishing for the King.”
Be safe fishing. And don’t forget to wear your life vest.
As always a big thank you to everyone who helps make this program possible each week—including our listeners and the stations that air our show.
