The City of Unalaska will contribute $36,000 to the disposal of a boat that the state scuttled in January. The F/V Akutan sat abandoned Unalaska's Captains Bay for months after a disastrous summer fishing season in Bristol Bay this summer.

Opponents of mining in the Bristol Bay watershed celebrate Administrator Scott Pruitt’s announcement and are committed to remaining vocal on the issue. On the other hand, four village corporations with land near or adjacent to the Pebble deposit have called on Pruitt to “ensure a full and fair review for the project” and are concerned that proposed restrictions could impede that process.
