Russia Floods U.S. With Seafood While Banning U.S. Imports for 6th Year

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch – 

Lost in the ongoing news about the hits to seafood from the Trump Administration’s trade war with China is another international trade barrier with Russia that’s been going on far longer.

In August of 2014 Russia placed an embargo on U.S. food products to retaliate for sanctions it and other Western countries imposed over Ukraine issues.

It included Alaska seafood products, which accounted for more than $61 million in sales to Russia, primarily pink salmon roe...

The Winding Glass: The Trade-War No One Wins

[The Winding Glass is a weekly analysis and opinion column from SeafoodNews Founder John Sackton]

It’s Lucy and the football again, Charlie Brown. For those not familiar with the Charles Schulz comic, every time Lucy holds the football for Charlie Brown to kick, she pulls it away at the last minute, leaving him flat on his back. The joke is that Charlie Brown never stops hoping she won’t pull the ball away, and is always disappointed.

These recommendations, however, have already sparked criticism from producers...

March marks the start of halibut and herring fisheries but there’s not a lot of good news this go around.

The eight month long Pacific halibut fishery is set to open on March 14 amidst a grim market outlook due in part to the coronavirus.

In Southeast Alaska, no ferries means no halibut shipments...

Arby’s Fires First in Fish Sandwich War as Lent Season Looms

Arby’s took to Twitter to fire at McDonald’s staple fish sandwich, the Filet-O-Fish. A menu item since 1962, Arby’s sentiment was simple, its Fish N’ Cheddar Sandwich, is better than the Filet-O-Fish.

Pollock Parts Plug Body Holes, Clean Lead From Soil

Fish Radio likes to spotlight fish parts that go well beyond dinner plates and can add up to more value than fillets.

Pollock, for example, Alaska’s largest fishery produces millions of pounds of fish sticks, surimi and roe – but other pollock parts are being used to seal holes in lung and blood vessels. 

Researchers at Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) have discovered that gelatin from pollock skins makes a sealant that is 12 times stronger than conventional uses.

A big plus is the fish gelatin remains liquid at room...
