Hauling Gear Google+/YouTube 'Hangouts On Air' Test #1

We're excited to announce that Hauling Gear has recently been enabled with 'Hangouts On Air' powered by Google Plus and Youtube!  This is a very exciting time for us, and hopefully for all of you in the commercial fishing industry up here in Alaska and beyond.. What you're viewing here is our first official test with the new broadcasting system. Stay tuned here for more.

Warm Regards
Team HG

PS. Text to voice synthesized by Chrome was the nicest sounding girl's voice available to us here in the HG control room. Please bear with us.. The project is still young ;-)

Special NoteAre you a leader in the Alaska Seafood business and want to go live with us? Follow us on Google+ and if you qualify we'll pull you in our VIP Circle. If you want to participate in a live hangout with us while you're out fishing it may be a challenge. Especially if you're using Inmarsat Satellite to access the web we have not determined whether or not the bandwidth of the terminal will support video. With new satellites being launched these days that may change. The good news right now though that we can call your phone on the boat from right inside the hangout and you can join the conversation as a voice participant.

For the viewer, if you can't join us on the air while it's being broadcast live the entire live event is automatically being recorded in real-time on our official Youtube channel located here! We will of course re-distribute the recording of 'Hangout On Air' here on and elsewhere using this beautiful invention called World Wide Web.

The future is now!.

Crabbers get a boost in bairdi Tanner quotas

LAINE WELCH Image via Wikipedia FISHERIES Published: November 7th, 2009 10:10 PM Last Modified: November 7th, 2009 10:12 PM KODIAK -- Kodiak and Alaska Peninsula crabbers got some good news last week -- bigger catch quotas for bairdi Tanner crab, a mid-January fishery important to local economies. Bairdi are the larger cousins of the better-known opilio Tanners, or snow crab. The bairdi boost stems from a big pulse of new crab recruits that biologists have been tracking for years. "That is what's fueling the increase in the harvest this year. We're just getting the very beginning of that year class," said.........

Danish commandos 'monitoring hippies' on Arctic offshore rig #artcticloons

Image by Steve Rhodes via Flickr Alaska Dispatch | May 31, 2011 Armed Danish commandos have (possibly) been summoned to monitor Earth-loving "hippies" clinging to the underbelly of an Arctic deepwater oil rig  off the coast of Greenland , sources say. The environmental non-governmental group  Greenpeace  has published  statements and  video  showing its activists aboard two ships that are attempting to "interfere" with oil exploration going on in the Davis Strait, 100 miles west of Greenland. This business has in turn prompted the Kingdom of Denmark to launch two ships and a few helicopters to monitor the Greenpeace interference. The  Leiv Eriksson  is the source of all this Arctic bait and switch. British oil company  Cairn Energy  is attempting to drill four wells at depths of at least 5,000 feet this summer in "iceberg-strewn sea" with the 53,000-ton offshore oil rig, which has made its way to Arctic waters after a month of failed attempts by Green
