Social FISHtancing – Episode 8 – Updates from around North America

By Hannah Harrison

In this episode, we catch up with some of the fishing folks we’ve been following as they cope with the challenges and opportunities of COVID19. We focus this podcast on telling important stories in North American fisheries, so in this episode we take some extra time to let our fishing folks share their stories of change, uncertainty, and optimism.

In this episode, we talk to:
Emma Kramer of Straight to the Plate in Alaska (
Melissa Collier from West Coast Wild Scallops in British Columbia (
Jordyn Kastlunger, who sells at Tuna Harbor Dockside Market in San Diego (
