Alaska Fisheries Report — Dec. 19, 2019



Togiak herring fishermen are expecting a huge harvest in 2020, but wonder if they will have buyers for so much roe.

Yes, Alaska has plenty of reasons to be proud of its fishing industry. More than 9,000 fishing vessels, home to six of the nation’s 10 top fishing port, the largest manufacturing sector in the state.

Coming up, a snapshot of the fishing industry.

Meanwhile out the Chain, Unalaska’s Marine Center is all ready for occupancy after two years of renovations.

We had help from Izzy Ross with Alaska’s Energy Desk, Laura Kraegel at KUCB in Unalaska. And Laine Welch from Alaska Fish Radio.

Happy holidays to everyone. Enjoy yourselves and stay safe.
