            A well-known Kodiak fisherman died Friday morning while descending from the summit of Mount McKinley.

            Fifty-two-year-old Brian Young died of an apparent heart attack after an arduous 20-hour day of climbing. Witnesses told the National Park Service that Young had suddenly stopped breathing after going into his tent to sleep.

            Young and his tent mates were at a high camp 17,200 feet up the mountain. The tent mates immediately notified the park service mountaineering patrol. Young was given CPR but could not be revived and was pronounced dead at 11 a.m. Friday by a park service volunteer physician's assistant.

            Park spokeswoman Maureen McLaughlin says Young's body will be recovered from high camp when weather permits.

            Young's friends say he was in excellent health and had trained hard for the climb. Climbing Mt. McKinley had been a goal of Young's for many years and he was very excited about his trip prior to departing for the mainland.

            Multiple cases of paralytic shellfish poisoning in southeast Alaska have prompted local authorities to warn people to not eat recreationally harvested shellfish from Kodiak beaches.

             Five people on Annette Island near Ketchikan developed symptoms of PSP last week with one man hospitalized in intensive care after eating cockles.

            Julie Matweyou is the Marine Advisory Program Agent for Kodiak. She says Kodiak has historically had some of the highest levels of PSP toxins ever recorded.

            Since there is currently no testing done around Kodiak, she says it's best to assume that we are having high toxicity similar to what's happening in south east.

            The Coast Guard Cutter Munro has a new commanding officer after Friday's change of command ceremony when Captain Matthew Bell turned over the helm to Captain Mark Cawthorn.

            During the ceremony, Bell summed up his two years on the Munro by listing of some of the accomplishments and some of the numbers the ship and its crew recorded.

            Not the least of which was 326 days away from homeport during the two year period.

            The Munro is the largest Coast Guard vessel home ported in Alaska. It's been stationed in Kodiak since September 2007.
