Responding to direction from the Board of Fisheries, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has moved forward with a new pollock test fishery in Kodiak waters, using seine gear.
At January’s Fish Board meeting here in Kodiak, board members and fishermen expressed interest in a walleye pollock test fishery with seine gear. In an announcement last week, the Kodiak Area Office of Fish and Game announced the test fishery will be conducted prior to June 9th. Given that time frame, interested fishermen need to register with the department by 5 p.m. Friday.
Starting next Monday, the Department will start contacting registered vessel operators to coordinate the test fishing activities.
The announcement adds that operators must obtain a Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission miscellaneous finfish permit card for purse seine gear. Contact the groundfish management biologists at Fish and Game in Kodiak for more information.

Coming up this week: Walmart commits to Alaska salmon, Is trophy sportfishing responsible for the decline in abundance and size of Kenai River King Salmon?, and don’t let Facebook scare your friends away from Alaska seafood. All that, and the coolest red king crab you’ll ever see. We had help this week from KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.

Coming up this week, the Board of Fish breezes through its Kodiak area meeting, Walmart gets charmed by the state, and take your best shot. No, really, I mean it – with your camera. All that, and we wish we could think of something witty to say about buying crab at nail salons. We had help from KUCB’s Annie Ropeik in Unalaska, KYUK’s Ben Matheson in Bethel and KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg.
