Coming up this week, federal disaster funds are starting to come available for those affected by the king salmon collapse; a third cannery worker has been charged with pollution in Unalaska, and did you know that there’s a Siberian freshwater salmon that can reach seven-feet long? Yeah. We’re going to need a bigger boat. All that and more amazing facts coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska and KCAW’s Robert Woolsey in Sitka.
