Pacific Fishing, Dutch Harbor Report, December 2015
By Jim Paulin
Economic development: Despite factory trawler opposition, Adak has won guaranteed minimum amount of Pacific cod each year.
Located some 350 miles west of Dutch Harbor, Adak is a former Cold War military outpost struggling to remake itself as a civilian town.
The 5,000 metric tons of cod could help the local fish-processing plant reopen.
The North Pacific Fishery Management Council approved the allocation at its October meeting in Anchorage.
