Andy Wink breaks down the salmon market, a halibut and cod fishery is underway, scientists are tagging Aleutian terns, a visit to the DES science fair, and the Tanalian HS choir sings "Emerald Stream."
Bristol Bay and Beyond, May 19: This week, McDowell's Andy Wink breaks down the sockeye market, including how this year's 18 percent forecast decrease between Alaska and Russia will factor in. "That's a pretty significant decline, and I think the expectation is that price will probably go up somewhat to offset that," says the senior seafood analyst in his interview with us. Fresh halibut (and cod) hit the dock this week. "It's just exciting when that halibut comes up off the longline and it breaks the water, and you see how big that fish is," says F/V Eagle II crewman Leroy Straley after his first trip out. We'll tour the DES science fair, and tag along with some scientists trying to tag along with Aleutian terns. "We're hoping that if we get some birds tagged, they'll wander around and kind of show us the neighborhood," says one. Those stories, plus a performance by the acclaimed choir from the Tanalian School, and a look back at some of the week's news.
