Peter Pan's not canning in Dillingham this season, plus Narcan is available now, Frank Woods has a tender side, honey bees and their keepers, and the author of "We Ask Your Blessings" joins to discuss the song that seeks blessing for the fleet.
Bristol Bay and Beyond, June 2: This week, a trip over to Peter Pan to find out about a major change this season: "We are not going to be canning at the Dillingham plant here," says fleet manager Tom Whinihan, who discusses the shift to frozen product forms and what that says about Bristol Bay's fishery. Plus, skipper Frank Woods tells us how his two year old tendering business is going, including how hiring so many of his kids is working out. "Horrible," he says, joking. "You know my kids are mechanically inclined, they have really good work ethics, and I rarely have to tell 'em twice what to do." We’ll check in with some folks giving honey bees the old college try this summer, learn more about that Narcan that has been distributed around town, and get the back story of the song "We Ask Your Blessings" from the lady who wrote it. Those stories, plus a look back at some of the week's news.
