This week we talk with Linda Behnken, Executive Director of the Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association. Linda has fished commercially for over 40 years. An outspoken advocate for her state’s fishing communities and the marine environment they depend on, she has led fights against industrial scale trawl net fishing and for climate change action and adaptation. We’ll discuss safety at sea, the threat of gold mining and widespread logging and her many other efforts to turn the tide. This episode will really hook you.
