Alaska Bristol Bay Fisheries Report: June 19, 2023 KDLG by Corinne Smith - June 19, 2023 Welcome to the Bristol Bay Fisheries Report! It’s a very different start to the season than last year, the 2023 season forecast is down from last year’s record-breaking run of 79 million fish - but still strong at an estimated 51 million.

The “Steller” Success Story of a Sea Lion Population Removed from the Endangered Species List in 2013, the eastern distinct population segment of the Steller sea lion is still recovered a decade later. NOAA Fisheries - June 16, 2023 Steller sea lions were named for Georg Wilhelm Steller, a German surgeon and naturalist who first documented the species in 1742. They were once so abundant throughout the North Pacific that Indigenous peoples and settlers throughout the coastal North Pacific Ocean used them for meat, hides, and oil. The species still plays an important role to Alaska Natives for food and handicrafts.
