    Walmart executives were in Alaska last week, meeting with state and industry officials about salmon. Though it has not followed through, the world’s largest retailer last year said without the Marine Stewardship Council’s stamp of approval, they would have to cease carrying salmon from Alaska.
    ASMI spokesman Tyson Fick said he came away from the visit feeling confident salmon will stay on Walmart’s shelves.
    “I think it went really well. It gives a lot of cause for optimism how it was received for both the sustainability efforts and management efforts of Fish and Game and NOAA in Alaska, as well as the RFM certification program.”
    “RFM” certification is the current scheme ASMI uses to ensure sustainability of Alaska salmon. It’s based on the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization standards.
    In a statement following the meeting Walmart vice president for meat and seafood, David Baskin, said the company remains committed to buying Alaska seafood, and was excited that ASMI has agreed to work with Walmart to ensure the RFM standard meets the principles for credible sustainable fisheries programs.

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.

           Kodiak hasn’t had too much snowfall this winter, which is probably good considering the city has no place to put it. Last year the city learned that its age-old method of dumping snow removed from city streets into the harbor would no longer fly with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. This prompted the city to hire Dowl HKM engineers to help identify spots that snow could be stockpiled during the winter months.
            In August, Dowl’s project manager, Aaron Christie, identified a list of potential snow storage spots and presented three options to the city council. Christie returned on Tuesday and narrowed that list down to one.
           “Site 12 is city owned, the entire parcel is 143 acres, much of that is hillside and sloped. There is an anadromous stream, meaning there’s fish there. And there are potential wetlands, it’s not officially mapped, but you can walk out there and tell there are wetlands. There’s good access from the corner of Maple and right where it transitions to Pillar.”
            The site is at the base of Pillar Mountain, behind the water treatment plant. He said its location near the wetlands and stream means there will probably have to be some sort of filter or treatment system for the snow melt, but that won’t be known until the permitting process is complete.
