Alaska Fisheries Report — Aug. 1, 2019



  • Statewide, salmon fishermen are pushing the 100-million mark, half of those fish come from Bristol Bay. We have a report of catches and prices.
  • What happens when the salmon don’t show up? The residents of Chignik on the Alaska Peninsula are suffering the second year of no fish. We look at how a fish-dependent community copes with the loss.
  • And we finish up with more on ADF&G’s efforts to learn how many offspring hatchery fish produce compared to wild stock.



We had help from Alex Hager at KDLG in Dillingham. Renee Gross at KBBI in Homer. And Alaska Fish Radio’s Laine Welch.

Good luck fishing everyone, and remember life vests really do save lives. Use one. And definitely be sure to have one on your kids when they are near the water.
