            Many professions offer networking opportunities of some sort and the fishing industry is no exception. Come December Alaska’s fishermen will gather in Anchorage for the Alaska Young Fishermen’s Summit, a three day leadership training.
            Torie Baker is with the Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory program and said while the summit’s goal is to educate the next generation of fishermen in the state, the age of its participants doesn’t really matter. 
            “It’s really folks that are in the business. Probably have had a permit or an operation in their name say for at least five years, five six years. They’re in the front end of their fishing careers. We also have many, many deckhands that come, whether they’re in their 20s, 30s, or early 40s. You know just depending on what configuration and how you’re involved in the industry really determines what your level of interest and how valuable this would be for you.”
            Baker said the summit will focus on four main areas of the fishing industry.
            “The business of fishing, the actual nuts and bolts of running your fishing business. Seafood marketing, where Alaska seafood of all shapes and sizes fits not only into the international scene but how is sort of the new issues around marketing coming to bare and affecting the future. The third area that we look at and we do a lot of intensive work with this is familiarizing newer fishermen with what are the different regulatory processes and fisheries management processes here in the state.”

            Last Friday the world watched in horror as one of the largest typhoons ever recorded hit the Philippines. Super Typhoon Haiyan wiped away entire towns and left the death toll in the thousands. As the United States government scrambles to send aid to those left among the devastation, various community groups in Kodiak have begun their own fundraising efforts.
             Filipino-Americans make up almost 35 percent of Kodiak’s population, and many still have family and friends in the Philippines. Mary Guilas-Hawver is the president of the Filipino American Association of Kodiak and said many folks have here have been able to get in touch with their relatives abroad.
             “Luckily I have not heard of anybody losing a family member in the Philippines. But yes, they lost their homes, their farm. Because it seems like a tornado and several tsunami hit it at one time, is the category five, is how people explain it to me. And they’re all emotionally drained and physically drained. If you’ll remember, a few days ago it was the earthquake in Cebu. And now it’s this typhoon. So it’s just one after another so people are kind of physically exhausted.”

Lacey Act Violation Nets Fisherman Probation
Tuesday, 12 November 2013

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    A Washington State man who fishes out of Kodiak was sentenced Friday in federal court for four felony violations of the Lacey Act.
    Steven Carr of Anacortes was sentenced to five years probation by Judge Sharon Gleason for misreporting where he caught $146,000 in rockfish, primarily Pacific Ocean Perch.
    Carr, fishing from the vessel Sea Mac, was participating in the Rockfish Pilot Program in 2008 when he took the rockfish in closed waters near Kodiak. The areas were open only when small Kodiak processors participating in the program were accepting fish.
    During four of Carr’s trips in July 2008, the processors in question were not accepting rockfish, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder, but Carr fished in the closed areas anyway, and reported the catch came from an open area farther from Kodiak. The U.S. Attorney’s office said Carr also made three similar trips in July 2007, catching about $125,000 in fish.
