    The Alaska Board of Fisheries wrapped up its Kodiak area meetings on Friday afternoon at the Harbor Convention Center. KMXT’s Jay Barrett spoke with board Chairman Karl Johnstone about some of the decisions that came out of the meeting, and how the meeting schedule may change in the future.
    Johnstone cited the closure of trawling in the Shelikof Strait as one of the biggest decisions the board made, as well as turning down a proposal to reinstate permit stacking for setnetters in the district.
    Another decision affecting local fishermen is the requirement for salmon seiners to toss back any king salmon from their nets before July 6th. The board hopes that move would help chinook populations from dwindling even further. Last year Kodiak seiners caught about 30,000 kings while targeting sockeye and pink salmon.
    After a quick four days in Kodiak, the Fish Board is now facing at least three weeks of meetings in Anchorage addressing Upper Cook Inlet finfish, which largely revolves around the most contentious allocation battle in the state, between commercial fishermen and the sportsfishing industry on the Kenai River.

            There have been a lot of changes at the Alutiiq Museum this past year. A number of long-time staff members said goodbye in 2013, and the museum continues to welcome new faces to its staff and board of directors. Cristina Faiella is the museums newest employee these days. She started her role as gallery manager last week and said she’s excited to be working with a passionate group of people so committed to preserving Alutiiq culture.
            “And such an intricate and wonderful culture, with the art and the music and the language being completely different. I’m Italian, and I grew up speaking Italian, but it’s phonetic. So you look at a piece of paper and you can pretty much sound it out and you’re going to be a little off but you’re going to be able to say whatever you read. And this is so different for me.”
             Faiella originally hails from New York, but studied sports and entertainment management in Florida, where she went on to the professional sports industry working for the Miami Heat.   
            “And then I was working for the Mets. And then I fell in love, to a military man. And that ended that and meant we were moving around after that. So we’ve moved around quite a bit, and I love it, I love the lifestyle.”
             The lifestyle brought her here to Kodiak, where she said she was drawn to the Alutiiq Museum and all it had to offer.
