Is the run on the brink or about to bust? Plus, small processing, canned salmon, and the mother of a victim of opioid addiction shares her story.
At Nakeen Homepack this week.
This is Bristol Bay and Beyond, KDLG’s weekly news magazine. It’s Friday, July 3, I’m Dave Bendinger, thanks for joining us. Coming up this week: An eager fishing fleet is wondering if this year is going to be a bust. We’ll get an update from the grounds this morning. Another of Bristol Bay’s revered elders passed on this week. Hjalmar "Ofi" Olson succumbed late Wednesday to kidney failure. We’ll visit a homepack processor in Naknek that is making small processing work. Plus, from marketers to tin salesman, there's a growing push in the seafood world to increase the popularity of canned salmon. For our Friday conversation, the mother of a young man from Dillingham who was killed by his addiction to opioid drugs speaks out. Those stories are coming up after a brief look back at some of the week’s news.
