Jul 6, 2016

A novel released this spring offers a glimpse into familiar Alaska themes: moving to Alaska, a first season as a greenhorn, and falling in love with a harsh land.

Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers

An Alaska crab fishing group is calling for President Obama to ban imports of seafood from Russia.

The Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers issued a statement claiming there’s been a spike in illegal, unreported and unregulated crab fishing in Russia’s waters in the past two decades.  This comes in response to a recent Russian ban on US seafood, which was in response to US and international sanctions. 

Executive Director of the Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers Mark Gleason says Russian illegal crab fishing is not a new phenomenon.
