         Coming up on this week's show, the halibut season is fast approaching, but what kind of prices can fishermen expect? Unalaska's mayor is worried king salmon bycatch may hurt her city; and changes to sport sablefish could affect the commercial fishery in southeast. All that, and Exxon Valdez Captain Joseph Hazelwood says he's sorry.

          We had help this week from Fish Radio 's Laine Welch in Kodiak, KUCB 's Anne Hillman in Unalaska, KCAW 's Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock in Sitka, KBBI 's Casey Kelly in Homer, and APRN 's Lori Townsend in Anchorage.
