Bristol Bay and Beyond, May 30, 2017: Last fall we made our annual pilgrimage to the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle, and brought back highlights from the one-of-a-kind tradeshow for this program. Join us this week for a rebroadcast of that show from last November. We catch up with ADF&G commissioner Sam Cotten, senior seafood analyst Andy Wink, several BBRSDA board members, and the guy trying to cut into Xtratuffs market with the new Deck Boss boot from Grundens USA. Plus, the United Fishermen of Alaska team behind a salmon habitat survey tells us about that effort and their findings. Peter Regan from Stay Cool Refrigeration discusses some economical RSW systems. We talk to a couple of booths, and listen in at the Fisher Poet's stage.
