Alaska Fisheries Report — Oct. 25, 2017



Some people think crab are ugly, but the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute sees that as a great selling point.

A delegation from the Netherlands visits Kodiak processors as some in that country considers purchasing Kodiak fish.

A big deadline is coming up for federal pot and longline fishermen in the North Pacific who want to use electronic monitoring in 2019.


And finally, this week is the anniversary of the biggest maritime disaster in Alaska. More than 350 people died when the steamship Sophia hit a reef near Juneau.


Thanks to Matt Miller at KTOO in Juneau who provided that great historic piece on the sinking of the Princess Sophia. And 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 the stations that air our show. For you fishermen, be safe. We and your families want you to come home safely.
