The Alaska Fisheries Report with Jay Barrett

Jay Barrett, KMXT – Kodiak

This week: big cuts for halibut longliners; a new poll suggests a majority of Alaskans are against the proposed Pebble Mine; a fisherman in Dutch Harbor goes missing under mysterious circumstances; a study is underway  to help reduce work-related injuries on vessels; also, a fight is looming between state and federal agencies after the feds shift boundaries demarking jurisdiction at the three-nautical mile line.

We had help this week from KDLG ‘s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KUCB ‘s Alexandra Gutierrez in Unalaska and KFSK ‘s Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg.
