            NOAA Fisheries scientists are using a new method for surveying the southern edge of the Bering Sea ice pack for seals as they both move north. A remote-controlled, pilotless drone is being flown off the deck of the NOAA research vessel McArthur II. The ship was recently in Kodiak, before heading to the Bering Sea and launching the Scan Eagle, a 40-pound drone with a 10-foot wingspan. It's not unlike the surveillance drones being used by the military in the Middle East.

           On this week's show, Southeast halibut charter clients only get one fish a day; Arne Fuglvog is emerging as the front-runner for the top job at NOAA Fisheries; Togiak herring did not go out with a bang; and a new Platinum-coated cannery. Also, Homer leads in halibut landings, Cook Inlet salmon is underway, and how the BBRDSA is spending its money. We had help from APRN's Libby Casey in Washington, D.C., Coast Alaska's Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau; KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham; Margie Bauman of the Alaska Journal of Commerce in Anchorage; KDLL's Ben Stanton in Kenai, and KBBI's Marcia Lynn in Homer.

            The last two remaining Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart will leave Kodiak next month, ending 65 years of service in the community. Though the faces have changed over the years, and the ministry has shifted in focus, the Grey Nuns have played an important role for many members of the community. KMXT's Erik Wander has more.

Wet Dogs Call it a Day PDF Print E-mail

            The Wet Dogs have decided to call it a trip. After three days stranded by inclement weather at Wide Bay on the Alaska Peninsula, the five jet skiers on a journey from Anchorage to Iliamna have suspended their trip and now plan to head back to Anchorage early next week, after a brief stopover in Kodiak.

            Wet Dogs team leader John Lang said from Larsen Bay on Kodiak's west side that the group made it as far as Wide Bay before weather delayed them for three days from getting to Chignik, their next intended checkpoint.

            The group is using what would seem to others as a major setback as a learning experience in planning a 2,000-mile race on personal watercraft. Lang and the other members of the team are considering the trip a success in spite of its premature end.

            Lang said the landing craft is expected to pick up the jet skis from the beach on Saturday, when the weather is expected to break, and that the group will then ride from Larsen Bay to Kodiak City. From there, two team members will fly back to Anchorage, and the remaining three will ride their jet skis back with the support boat. Lang said time limitations were the deciding factor in calling off the trip early.

            The goal of the Wet Dogs' journey around the Alaska Peninsula was to lay the groundwork for the Alaskan Wet Dog Race. Lang said he remains confident in seeing the 2,000-mile race on personal watercraft become a reality in the near future.

            When the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce presented its comprehensive economic development strategy to the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly recently, it was noted in the document that the borough's population fell by about 200 from 2007 to 2008 and by about 500 since the last U.S. census was conducted. According to Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development statistics, that trend is expected to continue over the next 20 years.
