Alaska commercial fishing news and notes
Market uncertainty makes this permit worthless. Big halibut cuts. Salmon will have to save the day!
$63 a ton.
The Canadian seiners left 16,000 tons. Oh Canada
That is wise use of a resource, Canadians always were smarter on the water. ADF&G WHERE ARE YOU ON THIS ONE? Everyone knows where the players are, gambling foolishly. Greedy blind.
I've heard that the Silver Bay fleet is fishing without a price and is being told to bring their own catch to the dock for the best hope of actually making money. This will just insure that even more leftover inventory will be in the freezer come next year.
So, did the MEMRY ANNE actually have another collision this year?
YUP, THIS YEAR JON MITCHELL HIT HIM. CHALK THAT ONE UP TO "LITTLE MAN COMPLEXIA"
replyto 3^^^Interesting that you mention the Silver Bay fleet in such manner as in another more recent thread someone had mentioned that the fleet might have connection to Pacific Seafoods and Trident.
Did you all know that you get more money per ton if you fished the herring for bait instead of sac roe? Bait herring is $0.22 - $0.27 per pound while sac roe is fetching a whopping $0.05 a pound!!! What a wasteful fishery - you need to step into the 21st century.
