          Coming up this week: The Snow Crab catch may be slashed next season; Sheldon Jackson College may be gone, but its salmon legacy lives on; and how much arm-twisting was involved in the birth of processor quota shares? All that and how they used to do it in Bristol Bay. Also, Rubber Fish, Rainforest Wild, and have fisheries worldwide reached The End of The Line? We had help from KUCB's Anne Hillman, who's back from vacation; Margie Bauman of the Alaska Journal of Commerce; the Deck Boss blog; KDLG's Adam Kane, and KCAW's Emily Schwing.

Cod LLP Letter Back Before Assembly PDF Print E-mail

            There could be a hot time in the old town tonight as the Cod LLP recency letter comes up again at the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly work session. Past meetings have drawn large crowds of people on both sides of the issue.

            The assembly is weighing whether to send a letter to the Secretary of Commerce asking him to reject the plan proposed by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council that would permanently remove nearly 800 fixed-gear cod licenses in the Gulf of Alaska. The removal would be of licenses held by fishermen who have not fished them within a certain eligibility window.

            On one side are those who say taking that many licenses away would be a barrier to others wanting to enter the fishery. They point out that many fishermen target different species at different times, and shouldn't be forced out of the fixed gear cod fishery just because they haven't fished them enough. On the other side are those who have fished their licenses and believe the borough should stay out of issue.

            The letter, addressed to Secretary Gary Locke, was proposed by Assemblywoman Sue Jeffrey. It requests that a thorough socio-economic analysis be made of the effects of extinguishing so many permits. The letter states that limiting access to the cod fishery to the proposed degree may not be in the best interest of Kodiak and other coastal communities. 

            Also on the agenda for tonight's meeting is a discussion of possible funding options for the borough and school district's list of renewal and replacement projects.

            Island Lake will open to motorized watercraft Monday, and borough officials and concerned residents of the area are reminding jetskiers about the rules of the road. 

            When jetskiers became too much of a nuisance on Island Lake, the Kodiak Island Borough put some teeth into the ordinance governing their use on the lake. Former assembly member Barbara Williams, who has owned a home on the lake since 1985, was behind the push for stricter rules.

            It turns out the company that brought high speed fiber optic telecommunications to Kodiak was just warming up. KMXT's Jay Barrett has more on the company's plan to extend its fiber optic service to Southwest, Western and Arctic Alaska.

            Kodiak-Kenai Cable Company , jointly owned by the Old Harbor and Ouzinkie Native corporations, now plans to run a fiber optic cable from Kodiak, to Dutch Harbor, and then back up to Bristol Bay and along the coast, ultimately ending in Prudhoe Bay.

            The long-awaited nationwide switch to digital TV is Friday, when all analog television broadcasts from full power stations will be replaced by digital transmission as mandated by Congress and the Federal Communications Commission in 2005. The switch however won't have an immediate effect on Kodiak television viewers or others in rural Alaska, at least not in the short term.For more information, visit the National Association of Broadcasters' Low Power TV answers page.
