Kodiak Salmon Catch Tops 11-Million PDF Print E-mail

            The salmon season is winding down in Kodiak Island waters, but the salmon keep coming in. The catch on September 1st brought the season's total harvest to 11 million fish.

            The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports nearly 9-million of those are pink salmon, with about a third coming from the Karluk, Northwest Kodiak and Southwest Afognak district, another third from the Duck, Izhut and Kitoi bays, and the rest scattered throughout the Kodiak Management Area.

            Sockeye harvest is 1.4-million, with a third coming from the west side.

            Almost 700,000 chum salmon have been caught, and over 200,000 silvers, as well. A few kings are still trickling in, with the season total about 12,600.

            Escapement numbers through Wednesday show a good return of humpies to the Karluk River. The nearly 1.3-million pinks that have gone past the weir is the third-best in the past decade through September 1st. Almost 46,000 pinks have escaped at Litnik, second only to 2002 to-date in the past 10 years.

            Pink return to the Buskin River continues to disappoint, however, with only 11,434 past the weir, by far the lowest to-date in this decade. The previous low through September 1st was 41,554 in 2002. The escapement was as high as 218,000 in 2005, and was nearly 83,000 just last year.

            Additional salmon openings were announced today (yesterday) for noon. A 78-hour opening went into effect for the Outer Ayakulik section, the Outer Kukak Bay, Hallo Bay and Big River sections, and the Afognak District, except for the Southwest Afognak and Inner Kitoi Bay sections, which will remain closed. The Duck, Izhut and Outer Kitoi bays remain open until further notice. A 30-hour opening was announced for the Inner Kukak Bay section.

            Call fish and game or check their website for full details of openings and closings.

            Coming up this week, new king salmon bycatch rules for pollock draggers, a tender goes down after hitting an ice berg, and a new owner and a new name for the old Harbor Crown cannery in Unalaska. All that, and the legacy of Ted Stevens. We had help this week from KUCB's Alexandra Gutierrez in Unalaska, KFSK's Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg, and KSKA's Ellen Lockyer in Anchorage.

            For the second year in a row, residents of the city of Kodiak will vote on whether to remove the roadblocks to allow city employees to explore unionization. A ballot measure initiative last year failed by just 17 votes, despite the city spending $40,000 fighting it.

            At a special meeting of the Kodiak City Council called for tonight, the council will vote on again authorizing a contract with an Anchorage-based public relations firm to fight the ballot initiative. The council is also scheduling a closed-door meeting with Bradley-Reid and Associates to discuss strategy in opposing the ballot measure.

            The special council meeting will be at 7 o'clock tonight downstairs of the borough building in the conference room.

Kubiak Joins Northern Waters Task Force PDF Print E-mail

            A long-time Kodiak resident and environmentalist has been appointed to a newly created task force to consider northern water issues.

            Former school teacher and fisherman, charter vessel operator Dave Kubiak, was appointed to the Northern Waters Task Force by Senate President Gary Stevens. Stevens is also Kodiak's state senator who represents Kodiak and parts of the Kenai Peninsula.

            The 11-member task force was created by the legislature this year. It is comprised of local, state, and federal officials from Alaska's coast regions. The task force will facilitate the creation of a joint federal and state entity to coordinate U.S. and Alaska interests that result from the warming of Arctic waters.

            Areas expected to be addressed include fishing, transportation through the pole regions, national security issues, and resource development in the newly accessible Arctic regions.

            In a press release, House Speaker Mike Chenault said that creation of the task force allows the legislature to bring in regional leaders from all aspects of government to work with residents, businesses and interests in the Arctic region. It is a way to give all areas a voice and a stake in the outcome as various state and federal agencies bring forward policies addressing the newly opening waters.

            The group will hold public meetings in areas feeling impacts of warming waters first-hand and make recommendations to the legislature in January 2012.
