Alaska Fisheries Report — Nov. 28, 2019

Low cod numbers could force a close of the federal Gulf of Alaska cod fishery. We look at how climate change threatens Kodiak fishermen.

The Pacific halibut fishery ended Nov. 14. Prices for the season held at about $14-15 per pound.

A new study which was scheduled to be presented this week in Juneau reveals previously unaccounted for economic and cultural benefits of Southeast herring.

And finally, a report on consumer willingness to pay more for sustainable fish.


We had help from Air Snider at KCAW in Sitka. Kavitha George with Alaska’s Energy Desk in Kodiak. Laine Welch from Alaska Fish Radio and Willy B here at KMXT.

A big thank you to you our listeners, to the radio stations that air our program and to everyone across the state that makes this show possible each week.
