    The vote over the controversial resolution asking the Kodiak City Council to declare a federal law unconstitutional had to go to a mayoral tie-breaker last night. The resolution, suggested by local followers of the group “People Against the National Defense Authorization Act,” or PANDAA, was tied three-three on the six-man council, forcing Mayor Pat Branson to cast the deciding vote:
    “I am going to give you the reasons why I’m going to vote no on this. I think the PANDAA group has been very passionate. It’s not that I disagree with some of the things they brought up. Originally when this was passed in 2011, I was kind of shaking my fist at Congress, saying, ‘what the heck are you doing?’ I think Congressman Young has stated that as well. However, it’s up to congress to change this.”
    Branson suggested the PANDAA group put their campaign against the National Defense Authorization Act to a vote of the people of the entire borough, or perhaps even to the state legislature.
    “It’s not that I disagree with some of the points that have been raised.  I think probably every council member agrees with that. But I think if you want to make this more meaningful for a community, you need to take it outside the city limits.”
    Mayor Branson’s no-vote joined the no votes of councilmen Charlie Davidson, Gabriel Saravia and John Whiddon. Councilmen Terry Haines, Rich Walker and Randy Bishop voted in favor of passage.
    We’ll have a follow up story next week with the reasons the councilmen voted the way they did.

           The three primary candidates running for governor this year convened at Kodiak’s Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium last night for a debate focused solely on topics related to the seafood industry. Incumbent Sean Parnell, Democrat Byron Mallott and Independent candidate Bill Walker fielded dozens of questions from a media panel, audience members and even each other during the event that was broadcast around the state.
            One question posed by an audience member dealt with the Fish and Game and the department’s declining budgets in recent years.
            Parnell said the state is getting a pretty good return on investment when you consider it is spending about $200 million on a $6 to $10 billion industry.
            “The underlying premise of the question about cuts to Fish and Game – I can tell you that with this legislature we have championed putting more dollars into research when it comes to our fisheries. We have now over 100 people working on getting information as to why fisheries are declining – the salmon in particular – in the marine environment, with 36 projects on going. That is incredibly necessary to sustain our fisheries for the years to come. So bottom line is we’re going to continue making that investment – not just into research, but into management of our fisheries, as well as to the marketing aspects as well.”

Coming up this week, Alaskan fishermen respond to Russia’s seafood ban; Alaska’s part of the Yukon River king salmon is over, but what is Canada’s management plan? All that, and where people go when they’re stranded in a fishing town. We couldn’t have done it without help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal AND Annie Ropeik in Unalaska, KUAC’s Emily Schwing in Fairbanks and KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg.

           Just after noon on Wednesday, the aroma of smoked salmon filled the main foyer of the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center. Lining the countertops was a plethora of salmon species and fillets, all smoked to varying degrees, using different recipes – ready for lunch time sampling. The fish was the result of a three day seafood smoking workshop, hosted by KSMSC and put on through the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has more.
