Alaska Fisheries Report – Sept. 6, 2018


Gov. Bill Walker signs a bill making it easier for fishermen to get loans for their business.

 The International Pacific Halibut Commission now has a member who comes from the sportfish industry.

 Fish meal is big business in Alaska. Fish meal is another victim of the China trade wars.

And finally, a Sitka sea lion takes in the town and decides to check out the local attractions.


We had help from Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer, Emily Kwong at KCAW in Sitka, and Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio

Be safe fishing. And watch out for those sea lions.

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.
