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.

More trouble for Wrangell Seafoods
Posted: March 27, 2009 - 2:41 pm
A Rhode Island bank yesterday sued Wrangell Seafoods Inc. and one of its chief financial backers in connection with a debt of nearly $650,000.
The lawsuit is part of U.S. Bankruptcy Court proceedings for the Wrangell processing plant, which the owners are trying to sell.
