Baker | Alaska seafood: we could learn a thing or three

It’s always been a common way of doing business in eastern Canadian fisheries. When markets take downturns and prices dip, the answer is simple: catch more fish…But what if we did have an option?

I have communicated my concerns. BH

Protecting sensitive coral zonesSensitive coral zones in the offshore may be off-limits to fishing, but what about oil drilling?  We find out more about corals and sponges and how they may or may not be protected.  And a new study looks at ways to predict fishery declines long before they happen. An update from the Matthew Legacy Committee A pilot project was put in place on the south coast this year, allowing many harvesters to get access to extra cod quota. But with the depressed market conditions and nobody apparently buying cod in 3Ps, some of those harvesters are now left wondering what all the fuss was about. [email protected]
