On Atlantic time

Thought I'd let you know I'm spending this week on the opposite coast, specifically the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Cape Hatteras long has been a summer vacation spot for my family. Sportfishing on charter boats is a big industry here, while commercial fishing seems to carry on largely out of sight of us tourists.

Anyway, I'm aiming to continue updating the blog with news and notes from Alaska's commercial fishing industry. I'll just be doing it from a continent away.

Arrived in Australia yesterday. Curious to see if there's anything cool in the comfish world on the coast near Brisbane as well..
