The Highliner

Commercial fishing is a bedrock industry in Alaska, and has been for more than a century. Every year scores of fishermen net millions of migrating salmon, challenge the icy Bering Sea to trap king crabs, lay miles and miles of baited hooks for halibut, and scoop up enough pollock for a zillion fish sticks. And when fishermen aren't out fishing, they're usually talking about fishing. That's what this blog by Wesley Loy has been all about for the two years he has written it.

Campbell's seat now open on Fish Board

This statement just arrived from Jim Marcotte, executive director of the Alaska Board of Fisheries:


Jeremiah Campbell has resigned his seat on the Alaska Board of Fisheries. Campbell concluded that the demands of his new employment responsibilities did not allow adequate time to properly serve on the board.

The board has over 29 meeting days scheduled between now and March and travel to four different communities. Campbell was first appointed to the board in September 2005 and was reappointed to a term expiring June 30, 2009.

The governor is expected to name a replacement prior to the upcoming Dec. 1-7 regulatory meeting in Cordova.
