Commercial Fishing Can Lead to Little Fish, But Probably Not in Alaska

Fisheries scientists are currently examining a possible link between commercial fishing practices and smaller fish sizes. KDLG's Adam Kane interviews Ecologist Stephan B. Munch about his research and John Hilsinger, Director of Commercial Fisheries. Director Hilsinger explains (at the 4:00 mark) how Alaska's commercial fisheries management practices and harvest means and methods work to protect species stock size in addition to other traits in order to maintain diversity and resiliency within specific populations.
