LOGO Alaska Fisheries Report

We’re going to ease into the new year with a few good books.

First up, we have the story of a Bering Sea Captain. Jake Jacobson recounts stories and memories of his five decades fishing Alaska’s dangerous and unpredictable waters.

And an we look at the early days of ocean exploration

Not the sailing the ocean blue kind of explorations. We’re talking about the guys who went deep below the surface with all kinds of funky deep sea gear and submersibles.

An interview with author and explorer Bill Strieber about his book “In Oceans Deep.”

We had help from Lori Townsend with Alaska Public Media. And Laine Welch from Alaska Fish Radio.

For you fishermen, good luck in 2020. Please put safety at the top of your list of resolutions.
