Lone Fisherman injured – catch saved by troopers

Wildlife troopers stepped in to save the catch of a lone fisherman injured on the job.

Peter Krovina, 67, of Sitka, suffered a severe hand injury while commercial trolling for coho salmon near Cape Edgecumbe west of Sitka. Krovina, who was fishing alone, was able to render first aid for his injury and return to port.

His injury required transportation out of Sitka for treatment. Because Krovina was unavailable during the offload, wildlife troopers assisted by facilitating the delivery of his commercial catch to a processor.
