Kodiak, Alaska—If you had your life to live over would you become a fisherman again?
This is one of the questions Courtney Carothers, Assistant Professor of Fisheries at University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, will be asking about 700 Kodiak fishermen in an upcoming survey. Carothers is studying social and cultural shifts linked to the privatization of fishing rights in Kodiak, Alaska, a 2-year project funded by the National Science Foundation. She was interviewed for The Alaska Fisheries Report with Jay Barrett on May 31st.
