Tkacz, who covered the Legislature and specialized in writing about the commercial fishing and seafood industries, died last May at age 61.

He was one of five inductees by the trade association. The others were retiring state Sen. Fred Dyson of Eagle River, Albert Ball Sr., Jim Kallander and Keith Jefferts.

The fishermen’s group says Ball, Kallander and Jefferts died this past year.
