The Alaska Fisheries Report with Jay Barrett

Jay Barrett, KMXT – Kodiak

Coming up this week, the Board of Fish has opened state waters in the Western Aleutians; It’s a tricky science trying to guess the salmon return to Upper Cook Inlet; and just how big is the economic benefit of commercial fishing to Southeast? All that, and more on the search for fishermen’s wives with big personalities.
