National Fisherman

Sure, Thursday is a big turkey day, but we're Alaskans. We pick fins over feathers and local over flown-in any day.
 
So think differently.
 
And Alaska's cold waters are producing.
 
"Finally got in this season's red king crab in and the rumors that we initially heard on the product were true -- big, bright and full of meat," says John Jackson of New Sagaya Markets. "So here it is first of the season Alaskan red king crab.
 
"Great eating during the holidays for sure and real treat in Alaska."
 
At New Sagaya, red king crab is $21.99 per pound and golden king crab is $15.99 per pound. New Sagaya has plenty of other tasty treats, some from waters outside Alaska. Live Atlantic lobsters $12.99 per pound, while fresh marlin is $7.50 per pound.

Some Alaska fishing and environmental groups believe an international review is the best way to develop specific, binding commitments to ensure clean water, salmon, jobs and traditional and customary practices are not harmed by British Columbia mines and that adequate financial assurances are in place up front to cover long-term monitoring and compensation for damages.
