Pollock Seining Opens Today
Monday, 01 December 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT

    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game test fishery for walleye pollock using seine gear in the Cook Inlet starts today (December 1).

    Last year the Alaska Board of Fisheries approved the test, which will run three months, until the end of February, or when the harvest limit has been reached.

    Fisherman participating in the fishery will be issued a Department of Fish and Game commissioner’s permit and be required to take observers on every trip to monitor bycatch and to record biological information from species caught.

    Other provisions include trip limits, a total harvest limit, and logbook requirements.

    The department has limited the amount of participants in this test fishery. Last year the Fish Board formed the Gulf of Alaska Pollock Workgroup with stakeholders from industry, State of Alaska, and federal government to provide insight on a state guideline harvest level for the walleye pollock fishery

    Information collected from the test Fishery can potentially show the effectiveness of purse seine as a gear type for harvesting pollock.

KEA Honored, Again, for Renewable Electricity
Friday, 28 November 2014

The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) has announced the recipients of its 2014 Leadership in Clean Energy Awards, and not surprisingly Kodiak's 99-percent renewable electric generation was one of the honorees. 
The 2014 awards recognize eight  state programs and projects that have accelerated the adoption of clean energy technologies and strengthened clean energy markets. Winners were chosen by an independent panel of five  judges, and are featured in a new report from the CESA.
In addition to Kodiak Electric Association, the Alaska Energy Authority received the award for the state. Others include the programs and organizations from Connecticut,Gresham, Oregon; New Mexico, Massachusetts, New York State and Sacramento.
CESA Executive Director Warren Leon said the eight programs honored were very diverse, including solar, wind, energy storage, hydropower, anaerobic digesters, microgrids, and combined heat and power. He called them all programs that should be emulated, and said Kodiak's is an effective example of partnership of the community, the utility and the sate.

    Gov.-elect Bill Walker and Lt. Gov.-elect Byron Mallott will be sworn into office on Monday at Juneau's Centennial Hall. The public inauguration ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. and is expected to last about an hour.

    Lindsay Hobson, Walker's daughter and a campaign spokeswoman involved in the transition, says they've reserved hundreds of seats for invited guests alone.

    “Between the band, the performers, the people on stage and their families, you know, the governor and the lieutenant governor-elect's family and friends that are traveling, it's close to 500.”

    There will be seating available in the main ballroom for nearly a thousand people. Overflow seating and viewing for hundreds more will be available in the Centennial Hall lobby and at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center.

    Alaska Airlines is adding an extra Anchorage-to-Juneau flight on Monday morning to accommodate inauguration traffic, the campaign said in a Thanksgiving press release.

    “This is the first time in state history where we have had both an Alaskan-born governor and lieutenant governor serving together. ...You know, I think there's going to be a lot of energy, a lot of excitement. And also, it is our first nonpartisan administration in Alaska history. And the only nonpartisan governor in the United States right now. So it will be certainly one to remember.”

    Live Gavel Alaska coverage of the ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. on 360 North.org. KTOO's Casey Kelly and former APRN capitol correspondent Dave Donaldson will host the coverage.

    After the ceremony, Hobson says Walker and Mallott will head to the third floor of the Capitol building to physically assume their offices. Walker plans to stay in the Governor's Mansion Monday night.

           The Kodiak High School volleyball team wrapped up its regular season earlier this month, finishing second at regions and fifth at state. But the team’s athletes won’t have to wait until next August to hit the court again, a few of them are looking to travel to Phoenix in June.
            Merissa Koller will coach the girls for the three-day tournament, which brings together teams of volleyball players from around the world.
             “And we’re all broken up into age brackets, ages 12-18.”   
             Koller said she gave out ten invitations to players, based on their performance throughout the regular season, and depending on who accepts, the team will likely register in either the 16 or 17-year-old bracket.
              Two years ago, Kodiak made a trip to Phoenix for this tournament and faired pretty well.

Coming up this week, rules are changing for fishing around the Western stock of Steller sea lions, and even though they're not a food-fish, could Sea Star Wasting Disease be a harbinger of things to come in a warming ocean? And do you remember last week when we had all that rosy news about next year's salmon forecast? Well, for Sitka Sound herring, not so much. All that and: Pirate Crab! The show was made doable through the terrific writing of KUCB's Annie Ropeike in Unalaska, KCAW's Rachel Waldholz in Sitka and KSKA's Monica Gokey in Anchorage.
