Can king crab return to Kodiak?
For Brad Stevens, king crabs could return to Kodiak. Chalk that up to science and technology. “Twenty years ago people would have said, ‘No,’ 10 years ago I was saying, ‘Maybe,’ and other people were still saying, ‘No,’ and now more people are saying, ‘Maybe’ ... because we’ve proven the technology all along at each step,” said Stevens. A crustacean expert who worked for the National Marine Fisheries Service in to...

Outdoor Kodiak: Stormy, cloudy days rock for Dollies
