Attn: all Alaska herring fishermen.

If you're a herring fisherman in Sitka today (or anyone who fishes herring in Alaska) and planning to head West on the full circuit please consider tweeting the herring fisheries updates from the grounds.

We'll be looking into options on how to most effectively re-distribute those tweets in a real-time fashion for managers and harvesters alike.

We're also looking into the possibility promoting the concept qualified folks in the fishery co-tweeting with alternative twitter handles. Each handle a part of an ad-hoc network and based upon a particular fishery and or geographical region in Alaska.

The reason we're looking fwd with at a real serious level at this time is due to the fact that in addition to FleetBroadband becoming more ubiquitous within the Alaska fleet, Iridium recently opened up their API's to support Twitter via txt. Details.

So, if you're in the fishery and interested in being part of this effort and not already followed by us on our @HaulingGear handle please feel free to fwd us your Twitter @handle and we will follow you back, DM and @mention you with details as they evolve etc.. >

3 cheers for the World Wide Web!
