    Air Station Kodiak has moved one of its MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters to Cold Bay in anticipation of the winter fisheries in the Bering Sea. The crew arrived on Monday, and will rotate with relief crews from Kodiak.
    An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter will also be on patrol from aboard a cutter during the winter as well.
    Air Station Kodiak uses the forward locations to cut down response times to mariners in distress. In the summer, Jayhawk crews are deployed to Cordova and Arctic region.

    Long-time Alaska fisheries journalist Bob Tkacz recently attended the second annual World Congress of Mariculture and Fisheries in Hangzhou, China. The theme this year is “promoting sustainable fishery development.”
    “The way these kind of events work here, the first one is usually kind of a dry run or dress rehearsal. You can go back on their web site and see last year’s was very small, so this was really the – even thought it was officially the second – it was really the international premier of this event.”
    Tkacz said the World Congress was actually comprised of our different, concurrent conferences.
    “One was on mariculture, one was on fishing, which included commercial fishing and seafood, but also recreational fishing. Another whole segment was on algae. Probably the longest track of the whole conference was on algae. And the fourth one was on maritime matters.”
    He said one of the discussions was about how Indonesia was preparing its national oceans policy, which has parallels in Alaska:
    “In Indonesia, they seem to think it’s a great idea, because it’s going to protect the marine biotech industry. Which is one of the things that Rep. Alan Austerman introduced a bill on, oh at the end of the session in May. It’s going to come up at next year’s session. The bill is to renew the new salmon or new seafood products tax credits. There’s a section in that bill that’s specifically addresses credits for biotech products. Those are things you make from what we now call the discards, the kind of left over parts fish products for meat and for food, that now go into fishmeal.”
    KMXT had an extensive talk with Tkacz about the event, and we’ll have more on this week’s Alaska Fisheries Report.

            Last week the Kodiak City Council postponed a vote on a memorandum of agreement with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. The agreement dealt with the construction and ownership of a new Pier I, the pier where the state ferry Tustumena typically docks.
           City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the idea to replace the pier came about last year.
           “Back in 2012 it was decided that the best use of the earmarked money that was remaining from Senator Stevens for a new Kodiak ferry terminal could be applied to a rebuild of Pier I, which is a wooden dock structure, aging and does require quite a bit of maintenance.”
           She said DOT started designing a new dock this past year and nominated the project for the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program.
           “And what that did was provide 100 percent state and federal funding without a requirement for any city funds whatsoever.”
            Kniaziowski said the designs for the pier are about 95 percent complete, and the city has been discussing a memorandum of agreement with the state about how that pier would be operated. She said it needs to be consistent with state requirements and federal highway administration standards.

            The Kodiak City Council won't be having very many meetings this fall. Last Thursday the council unanimously approved the cancellation of all its November meetings, which City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski recommended due to scheduling conflicts the whole month. 
           “The holidays approach and it’s more difficult for us to get together and have meetings and November has proven to be a really difficult month this year. We have travel planned, of course there’s the week long AML meeting, which is very important that both elected officials and staff attend that.”
            The council also authorized Kniaziowski to call a special meeting if need be, and if a quorum of council members could be present.
            Cancelling November’s meetings means the council will be extra busy in December and January.
            “It will create some very long agendas as we move forward, especially for December, that ought to be pretty sizeable from the looks of the preliminary list.”
            As for the rest of October, the council will hold a work session on the 22, followed by a regular meeting October 24. The Kodiak Borough Assembly will hold a regular meeting this Thursday and wrap up the month with a work session on the 31st, Halloween Day.

Bering Sea Crab Season Opens Today - For Some PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 October 2013

    At noon today, the Bering Sea crab season officially opens. But the vast majority of fishing boats will be stuck in port, because the federal employees who issue their permits have been furloughed.
    Vessels that are set up to harvest community development quota, or CDQ, will be able to start fishing on time, though. That's because the State of Alaska hands out those permits -- not the federal government. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, five vessels were signed up to fish for CDQ as of late yesterday.
