Alaska Fisheries Report — Feb. 28, 2019




            A whole lot of fishin’ going on. Hundreds of boats were out fishing during February. We’ll have a rundown on who’s fishing where.

            A new study gives Alaska regulators a better look at what happens when hatchery salmon produce in the wild.

            Trident Seafoods will pay up to $23 million in a settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency dealing with refrigeration compliance.

            King salmon have the name, but they don’t rule the ocean. We have a report on king predation and salmon maturity.



We had help from Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer. Izzy Ross at KDLG in Dillingham, Johanna Eurich at KYUK in Bethel. And Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.

For you fishermen, remember life vests really do save lives.


The Alaska Fisheries Report is produced in the studios of KMXT, Kodiak and is aired by public radio stations throughout Alaska.
