Interview: Behnken a National Fisherman "Highliner"

SITKA, ALASKA For the second year in a row a Sitka fisherman will appear on the cover of the December issue of National Fisherman, as one of that magazine’s “Highliners of the Year.”
Except this year’s honoree is a woman, and only the third female ever to be named to the prestigious roster.
Linda Behnken is a salmon troller, and a longliner for halibut and black cod. She’s currently the director of ALFA, the Alaska Longline Fisherman’s Association. She stopped by KCAW to speak with Robert Woolsey about her interest in fisheries management, her years on the North Pacific Council, IFQs, the Southeast trawl ban, and the charter halibut conflict.
