Alaska Fisheries Report – March 21, 2019


Sac Roe herring fishermen gear up in Sitka but not everyone is pleased with Fish and Game’s plan for the fishery. We have a report on talk of civil disobedience on the water.

  Halibut opened on March 15. The catch limit is up slightly and market conditions look good.

And we look at salmon genetics. Salmon researchers are trying to determine if hatchery fish straying from Prince William Sound are affecting salmon around Kodiak and Cook Inlet.


We had help from Katherine Rose at KCAW in Sitka, Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer. And Laine Welch with Alaska Fish Radio.

The name of the halibut song is “John Tanakanak” which was performed by the St. Innocent’s Academy Singers. It comes from the CD “How Can I Keep from Singing.”
