BUSINESS Fish Factor Recycling old fishing nets gets underway this summer at several Alaska fishing ports. The communities of Naknek, Dillingham, Petersburg and Cordova received funding via the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission for two years to jump start net recycling projects. The pool of money comes from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Foundation, which has committed $2 million to the 'Fishing for Energy' program over the next five years.
