Alaska Fisheries Report – April 11, 2019



This week we go to the Iliamna Lake region for public hearings on Pebble Mine. It’s a region that lacks employment opportunities, and the mine could provide good paying jobs.

The governor announces his appointments for the Board of Fish. At least one of those appointments is likely to prompt heated opposition.

And finally, we’ll have more on Frankenfish, those genetically modified salmon that will be hitting American grocery stores.

We had help from Izzy Ross at KDLG in Dillingham, Aaron Bolton at KBBI in Homer, and Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.

Special thanks for help on the Pebble Meetings story goes out to Elizabeth Harball and Annie Fiedt at Alaska’s Energy Desk, as well as Lori Townsend with Alaska Public Media

Whether you fish commercially, sport fish, or fish for subsistence, remember life jackets really do saves lives.
