John Hockenberry, Halibut Fishing in Seattle

Friday, April 20, 2012

John Hockenberry is broadcasting from KUOW in Seattle this week. While he's in town, he's reporting on the city's diverse economy. Seattle may be home to industry leaders like Starbucks, Amazon, Microsoft, and Boeing, but the city grew up along the port, and the fishing industry is still a major part of Seattle's economy. John traveled to Seattle's Fisherman's Terminal to speak with a number of halibut fishermen who's families have spent generations in the industry. He talks to them about the fishing economy, the gossip on the boat, and, of course, what they think of "Deadliest Catch."
