Alaska Fisheries Report — March 7, 2019



            The Coast Guard releases its report on the sinking of the F/V Destination, the Bering Sea crabber that went down with all hands two years ago. Among the causes cited, stability issues, overloading, fishing in icy conditions and crew fatigue. We’ll have details on this week’s program.

             Alaska seafood exports to China dropped substantially last year because of the tariff war with China.

            Researchers look north as they consider the possibility of future commercial fisheries in the melting central Arctic Ocean.

            Also fishing in Cold Bay is keeping rescue crews busy, and Trident Seafood’s new protein packed noodles are a huge winner.


We had help from Lara Kraegel at KUCB in Unalaska. Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer. Ravenna Koenig with Alaska’s Energy Desk in Juneau. And Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.
