Think winter is a slow time for Alaska fisheries? Well, think again. Cod, pollock, snow crab, Tanner crab, rockfish and a wide assortment of white fish are among the fisheries either currently open, or set to open soon.
The partial government shutdown is causing problems that could extend for some time.
And fish counting goes high tech.
We had help from KBBI’s Aaron Bolton in Homer, Mat Herz with Alaska’s Energy Desk, and from Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.
Thanks to everyone who helps make our program possible and remember, stay safe fishing.
