Alaska Fisheries Report — May 23, 2019



Things look good for Copper River fishermen. The Copper River opening is the year’s first salmon season of the year.

A judge rules a Bristol Bay seafood association can take a position on Pebble Mine and can fund groups opposed to the mine.

We’re coming up on Memorial Day and that means Boating Safety Week and Festivals in fishing communities.

That’s it for this week’s edition of the Alaska Fisheries Report. 

 We had help from Izzy Ross at KDLG in Dillingham, Joe Viechnicki at KFSK in Petersburg, and Laine Welch at Alaska Fish Radio.

OK folks. I know I’ve said it a million times, but life vest really do save lives. If you don’t like the bulk, buy one of those flat ones that look like suspenders. Do whatever it takes to ensure that you’ll have a life vest on while at sea.
