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

    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.

    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.

           The Salvation Army is looking to tap into some federal and state funding this year and needs the city’s help to do so. During Tuesday’s City Council work session Jonathan Strong spoke to the council about the organization’s hope continue its service in the Kodiak community, and add some new programs as well. Strong is the case manager for the Salvation Army’s transitional housing program in Kodiak. He said the organization is requesting the city help them provide a certification of local government approval.
             “It’s basically part of a verification process to ensure that tax payer supported funds, like this Emergency Solutions Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, are awarded to non profit organizations who are in good standing in the community and are asking for funds, in good faith, to provide assistance to the community.”

             Strong said they are requesting $29,264 from the Emergency Solutions grant and that money will be put toward funding two specific areas of work the Salvation Army does locally.
             The first one would be homeless prevention services for Alaska Native and Non Native residents in the Kodiak area that meet the rental assistance needs requirements. Basically people who are in imminent danger of losing their home or rent for various reasons.

           It’s a relatively light meeting for the Kodiak City Council tonight. The council will take a look at the city’s federal capital improvements program list. It includes a number of projects the city hopes to have funded with federal dollars this year and will be sent to Washington D.C. following council approval. The Monashka pumphouse replacement tops that list, followed by Shelikof Street bulkhead parking and Shelikof Street pedestrian improvements.
           Also on tonight’s agenda is an office space lease with Morpho Trust USA, Inc., a company that issues Transportation Worker Identification Credentials, or TWICs. TWIC cards are needed for dockworkers of any kind in Kodiak.

         Finally, tonight the council will vote on whether or not to accept the city’s audit that was presented during Tuesday’s work session. Overall, the city was given a clean bill of health in terms of finances by Auditor Michelle Drew of BDO USA.
           Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT.
