Just about 70 fishermen from all over Alaska have gathered in Juneau for the Young Fishermen Summit. Nearly every fishery is represented here, with gillnetters being the highest volume. Most of the attendees are from Southeast, however Bristol Bay is highly represented as well. The two day event covers many facets of the fishing industry, including fishery management, private marketing and politics. I’ve included some quick video from Bruce Gabry’s talk on record keeping. The images are from the media package included at the summit. Check back for more updates as the day continues. Later today, we will be at the NOAA Headquarters at Lena Point. Stay tuned and post any questions if you are interested.
The event was a massive success this year with the biggest turnout ever. Fisherman could find everything from Xtratufs to hatch covers. Of course there were plenty of marine gadgets, too. AIS is heating up as smaller vessels are adapting the new technology. There were even “booth babes!” The best part of the event was simply networking and meeting new fisherman from different regions and fisheries.
For ten years, Rob Phillpott, has been on the hunt for pink salmon and running the deck aboard the Quandary with Tom Polluck as captain . This was the summer of a lifetime in southeast, so its easy to see why everyone is so excited. Who am I kidding? It’s always a blast in southeast alaska during the summertime. Enjoy the videos..
No story about the Quandary could be told without this video. The video is truly amazing. I believe its from the summer of 2007. Hollis Jennings constructed this her “greenhorn” year.
How cool is this? Sadly, southeast alaska doesn’t seem to be that supported. Move the map around to check out vessels from around the world. I’ll try to figure out a way to embed this in a sidebar.

The weather is down right crappy in Juneau. The winds have been gusting up to 60 miles an hour for the past couple of days. No doubt, this is a direct result of the Typhoon off the coast of Japan. Whatever the cause is, I’m ready for a reprieve from the cold wind and rain.
Shrimp and mangroves. Mangroves and shrimp. The two are intertwined, ecologically and economically. They are like a pair of orbiting stars, though one shines at the expense of the other. The bitter irony is that without mangroves, there would be no shrimp. Mangroves are the natural nurseries of the shrimp species that are farmed commercially, just as they are for so many other marine creatures. In the wild, shrimp begin their lives in offshore waters, where the adults spawn. Then, carried inshore by currents, and perhaps aided by their own swimming, the larvae take up residence in sheltered inshore habitats where mangroves flourish.
