The closure of the 2020 Gulf of Alaska cod fishery qualifies as a fishery resource disaster because of the sudden, unexpected crash of the fish stock biomass. That’s according to a resolution being considered during tonight’s regular meeting of the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly.
In conjunction with the resolution, the assembly will consider a letter to Governor Mike Dunleavy asking him to declare the 2020 Gulf P-Cod fishery as a disaster.
Also on the agenda is the renewal of the liquor license for the Second Floor Restaurant.
Tonight’s teleconference meeting begins at 6:30. KMXT will broadcast the meeting live.
