Karluk and Ayakuli River King Salmon Limits Put In Place
Thursday, 10 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    The bag, possession and annual catch limit of king salmon on two Kodiak Island rivers have been cut by emergency order from the Department of Fish and Game.
    On the Karluk River, no king salmon may be possessed or retained and anglers may not use multiple hooks or bait. On the Ayakulik River fishermen have a possession and bag limit of one king salmon 20-inches or greater, though the annual limit is reduced to two fish per year.
    The emergency orders have been implemented because of expected low escapement again this year. The biological escapement goal – that is, the number of spawners needed for a sustainable stock – is between 3,000 and 6,000 kings in the Karluk River. It’s a goal that’s only been achieved twice since 2006.
    The B-E-G for the Ayakulik is between 4,000 and 7,000, which was not attained between 2006 and 2009, or last year.
    In the announcement, Fish and Game said it expects poor runs this year, and have some uncertainly over how quickly the stocks may recover. Increased fishing opportunity may be allowed by subsequent emergency order on both rivers if an in-season assessment shows the runs are stronger than expected or the B-E-Gs will be met.
    The king salmon limits go into effect on June 1st and are effective through July 25th.

Military Children to be Honored All Month

           April is month of the military child in Alaska – a recognition that doesn’t go unnoticed here in Kodiak. The island is home to the largest Coast Guard base in the U.S., but is also home for service men and women, and their families, who are enlisted in the Navy Seals and National Guard.
           Velma Vining is a child development services specialist on base and said the month of the military child is meant to honor the children of those families, who are often forced to move around frequently and live in single-parent homes when parents are deployed or on duty.
           “It’s really hard for kids to pick up and move away from their family, their friends and really close relationships that they’ve developed and it happens to them – it can happen ever six months to a couple years that they have to say goodbye to really close friends, and it can be hard for any age group. So these are the challenges that military kids have to face. And not only that, not only do they have to pick up and leave and change their home, they also have to say goodbye to a parent when they deploy.”
            April 15th was designated as a day to wear purple and show support for military children by Governor Sean Parnell. Vining said this is the third annual purple up for military kids observance.
            “There’s something special about the color purple. Purple symbolizes all the branches of the military because all of the different colors come together to make purple – green and blue and red for the Marines – they all come together and make purple. So it’s a visual way to show support for all military children.”

Shipyard May See Additional Rate Increase

           There could be some rate increases for the Kodiak shipyard in the coming months. The topic was the lone agenda item during the City Council’s work session last night.
           Last year the council, under the recommendation of the Port and Harbor Advisory Board, decided to increase rates at the shipyard by 20 percent. The goal was to help bring the shipyard out of the red financially, which is where it has been in previous years.
          This January the advisory board met and proposed another rate increase to help springboard the elimination of the shipyard’s budget deficit. That proposal included a 30 percent rate increase on certain fees, including the lift, block and launch. The board also suggested drafting some sort of reduced lay-day fees for long term work, with the hope that it would encourage more boat owners to keep their boats in the yard longer, and generate more money. 
           Nick Szabo chairs the advisory board and said shipyard finances are improving, but the additional rate increase is needed.
          “We thought let’s just do a 30 percent increase this year, and hopefully that will close the gap, and then we’ll just ride with that. So that’s basically what we’re recommending.”

           This weekend is the annual Kodiak Children’s Fair, an event for young kids, parents and childcare providers alike. Jane Petrich is the director of the Kodiak Child Development Center on base and said the event began as an idea to honor those who work with children, but it has grown in size and purpose over the years.
           “It sort of morphed into this event where agencies came to where we were at the high school for years and had things to share with families and providers, all dealing with children five years and under. So it’s a really special population.”
           Petrich said the fair will include activities and games for children in that age group.
           “So they might be doing an art project, they might be making a book. I’m going to be planting seeds and talking about gardening and how that can be expanded into the life of a young child. I think the school district is there and they do some more motor activities. I know Providence is going to be there and they’re going to be setting up some mats and giving children the opportunity to do some gross motor things. There might be some water play, or sensory play. So lots of different just small activities for children to do.”
            The fair will also include informational materials for Parents and childcare providers about services for that five-and-under population of kids in Kodiak. It will also provide necessary training opportunities for those who do work with young children.

    To qualify for the state bee, students had to take first place in their school bees and pass qualifying exams. Friday's competition included 41 girls and 59 boys from around Alaska.
