'Harmful fish management makes no sense'
To the Editor, Starting Oct. 6, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council meets in Anchorage on the continuing dispute of Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management. Trawlers want to privatize public groundfish resources, because it means they could collect quota lease fees of up to 70 percent without working aboard the boats where the quotas are caught. That just takes money from captains and crewmen who might sp...

Guest Opinion: CFA's not good for Kodiak
The Kodiak Fisheries Work Group recently drafted a letter representing the views of the "community" to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council supporting the formation of groups called Community Fishing Associations and giving quota share allocations to these groups.

He fished blue, brown and red crab, baradai, opilio in waters off the Aleutian, Pribilov and St. Matthew Islands; he fished with the Russians in joint ventures at Kamchatka. He rolled with the rogue waves on highliner boats commanded...

Kodiak boys look to claim first state cross country title since 2008
Levi Fried feels like he owes Kodiak High School a state title. In 2012, as a sophomore, Fried was part of a Kodiak boys cross country team talented enough to win a state championship. But a mid-season hip injury derailed Fried, and he finished 23rd at the state meet, while the team — behind first- and second-place finishes from Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen — placed third, a mere 10 points behind champion Wes...
