           This Sunday a group of Kodiak’s male and female vocal enthusiasts will put on a winter song concert. Jenny Stevens has been directing her male vocal group, the Alpha Singers, for about five years. 
            “There’s between 10 and 12 guys. They get together every night and sing their hearts out and have a lot of fun. As one guy said, we schedule our whole lives around Monday night rehearsal.”

            The Alpha Singers will be in Sunday’s concert, but Stevens said they won’t be the only vocalists performing. She recently formed a women’s singing group, the Song Warriors, and they will also be singing seasonal songs for the event.
             Meredith Pippin is a member of the Song Warriors and said she’s always loved singing with groups, so she was happy to find one here in the Kodiak community.  
             “We get together every Wednesday night at Jenni’s house at about 7 p.m. and we have a folder of music and we start reading through it and go from there. Sometimes we have moments where we’re just singing as if we’re professionals, but really it’s just a group of us who love to sing, not only who love sing but to sing in a group and with other people.”
              Darcy Stielstra performs with the Alpha Singers and said the male group practices once a week as well.

           A handful of Kodiak projects will be sent to Washington D.C. in the near future. During last night’s city council meeting the council unanimously approved the city’s prioritized federal capital improvements program and issues list, essentially the city’s wish list of sorts for federal funding.
         City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said she spoke with the city’s D.C. lobbyist, Brad Gilman, and he recommended including all transportation and water infrastructure projects that are underway in the event some funding becomes available for those specifically.
          “He said the same thing last year but I think he has a feeling there might be some chance for federal money.”)
           Kniaziowski said the list is similar to the one the city submitted last year, but includes two new issues they hope D.C. folks will consider taking a closer look at.
          “Council passed that resolution in favor of rural subsistence determination so Brad and his staff have been working that on the hill and he wanted that in there. And also some comment on the federal fishery observer program funding.”
           The top priority on the city’s federal capital improvement list is still the Monashka pumphouse replacement. Kniaziowski said that $2 million request is included with the hopes that any federal funding allocated can be used as a match for the state municipal matching grant. She said that worked well when they did the same thing for the UV project, and would mean the city won’t have to borrow as much money to fund the pumphouse replacement.

Coming up this week, sportsfishing interests in Soldotna are not giving up on their efforts to force a vote to ban setnets in Cook Inlet, there’s more quota for Southeast halibut fishermen, but less elsewhere, and a breakthrough in excluders for trawl nets might save more salmon. All that, and, when is a pollock a cod? Kinda... now – we’ll explain that, all coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg, KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, Seafood dot com’s John Sackton in Lexington-Mass., APRN’s Steve Heimel in Anchorage and KDLG’s Dave Bendinger and Mike Mason in Dillingham.

That Pollock You're Catching? Now it's a Cod PDF Print E-mail

    The Pollock A season got underway in the Bering Sea on Monday, but what the fishermen haul up will now technically be a cod fish.
    That’s because scientists have recently dug deeper back into the Pollock’s family tree and found out that they are more closely related to cod than they knew. In fact, Alaska Pollock are more closely related to Atlantic cod than anything else.
    So, NOAA has moved Alaska Pollock from the genus Theragra, back into the genus Gadus, where it was originally assigned back in the day when it was first described scientifically. Alaska pollock now is to be called Gadus chalcogrammus, and it will join Pacific cod, Atlantic cod, and Greenland cod as a true gadid, or true cod.
    All cod and the Alaskan Pollock, along with hake, haddock and whiting, were always together in the scientific classification family Gadis, in the order Gadiformes.
    Of course, that really won’t make a difference to most people, except maybe fishmongers who want to make sure they’re getting exactly what they ordered.
    According to an item on Seafood.com, NOAA did not instigate the change. The new classification was made by the American Fisheries Society in their publication of common and scientific names, and that is the authority used by NOAA.

Shaylon Cochran/KDLL

    The Alaska Fisheries Conservation Alliance did not agree with Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell’s decision this month to not allow its proposed ban on commercial setnetting on the 2016 ballot. They’re taking their case to court. KDLL’s Shaylon Cochran has more.
