Knowing Fish: Documenting long-term changes in Alaskan halibut fisheries from fishermen’s local knowledge




Please join UAF researchers for a presentation and discussion about changes in local halibut fisheries. We will be hosting two outreach events this May in Homer and Sitka. Details are below and flyers attached—please spread the word. We thank you for your continued support!



Knowing Fish: Documenting long-term changes in Alaskan halibut fisheries from fishermen’s local knowledge

UAF researchers interviewed Alaskan fishers to understand how fishing for halibut and other species has changed over the past few decades. The research team will present results from Sitka and Homer that highlight the effects of halibut regulations on people’s fishing practices, opportunities, and perceptions of resource health. The presentation will also feature a short film that the team created about the value of fishermen’s local knowledge. The presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience.
