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!.

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.
