    Saying it’s about time for fisheries experts and scientists to come together and discuss fisheries bycatch and advancements in reduction, the organizer of the Lowell Wakefield Fisheries Symposium will dedicate its next gathering to just that. Low returns of king and chum salmon, and revelations in recent years of exactly how big the bycatch is has increased awareness of the issue across Alaska.
    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, along with industry, have all been at work trying to reduce bycatch, and those efforts, along with bycatch reduction techniques from around the world will be shared by a field of experts at the state’s largest gathering of fisheries scientists. Gordon Kruse, a UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences professor based in Juneau, is the organizer.

            The government shutdown last month threw a wrench into many federal proceedings, including statewide subsistence criteria hearings.
            Back in September Federal Subsistence Board members held a public hearing in Kodiak to get input on how communities should be classified as rural or non rural.  Basically, those living in rural areas are allowed access to federal lands for subsistence purposes, people in non rural places aren’t. The deciding factor has often been influenced by population numbers, and every ten years, when new census data is released, the board typically reexamines statewide rural/non rural classifications.
             That process hasn’t always been well received, so this year the board decided to hold community hearings and gather public input on how it should determine rural places. But things didn’t go according to plan.
             Carl Johnson, the council coordination division chief for the Office of Subsistence Management, said the government shutdown forced five of those rural determination meetings to be cancelled. Because of that, Johnson said the deadline for public comments on the rural determination process has been extended.
             “So that took away the public opportunity to participate, so we felt it was only appropriate to extend the deadline so that people would have opportunities to participate in these rural determination hearings which we have now scheduled out through the third week of November.”

Swimming and Diving
    In Swimming, the Kodiak Bears are again the top team in Region III, cruising to the team titles in Kenai. The Kodiak girls had 82 points for their seventh straight region title, while the boys scored 97 for their fifth straight crown, and 9th out of the last 11.
    There were over 200 swimmers and divers competing and six region records set, including two each by Ila Hughes and Tahna Lindquist.
    Hughes took region records in the 100 and 200 meter freestyle races, while Lindquist broke her own records from last year in the 200 individual medley, and then setting a record of 5-minutes in the 500 freestyle, seven seconds faster than her previous mark. She won by over 20-second. By comparison, she would have beaten everyone in the boys 500-meter race by more than four seconds.
    We’ve got full results after the jump.

Volleyball
    The Kodiak High School volleyball team will be seeded number one when the Region III tournament comes around later this week. The Bears remained undefeated in region play by sweeping Palmer over the weekend. They were the only other undefeated team in the region.
    On Friday, the first game was close, with Kodiak winning 27-25, but the Bears downed the Moose easily 25-12 and 25-16 in the final two games to win the match 3-0.
    On Saturday, the Bears dropped the third game 19-25, after winning 25-15 and 25-18. Kodiak came back to clinch 25-15.
    As the top seed in the regions, Kodiak will get a first round bye and face either fourth-seeded Colony or fifth-seeded Wasilla. Their first game will be Thursday evening in Soldotna, and will be streamed live online, as have all their games this year.

Search Ends for Akhiok Man PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 04 November 2013

KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — Volunteers and emergency responders have ended their search for a missing 20-year-old man from Akhiok on Kodiak Island.
    Brandon Phillips on Oct. 26 left the village 150 miles southwest of the city of Kodiak on an all-terrain vehicle and said he was going to hike. He was reported missing that night.
    Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters told the Kodiak Daily Mirror that as many as 30 people searched for Phillips after the Coast Guard conducted weekend searches from the air with an infrared camera.
    Searchers found Phillips' ATV, two backpacks and a kayak.
    They also found an oar floating in nearby water.
    Troopers say Phillips may have fallen out of the kayak and died of hypothermia.
