           Coming up this week, Bristol Bay fishermen will be surveyed about how they feel about a permit buy-back, Alaska salmon is getting a good reception on the world stage, and an State Representative returns from Canada’s smallest province after asking them to oppose genetically engineered salmon. We had help this week from KUCB’s Stephanie Joyce in Unalaska, Seafood.com’s John Sackton in Brussels, and KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.
            The Alaska Fisheries Report was once again humbled to win an Alaska Press Club Award for Ongoing Public Affairs last Saturday. The program absolutely could not be done without the generous help of Alaska's public radio reporters and other fishy contributors near and far. The award really belongs to all of them, and they have our thanks.
