While trawling the floor of the Bering Sea and the Aleutian region, scientists have discovered several new species of fish -- snailfish. Some were only named last year. Researchers were not looking for them, the trawl was a part of a yearly stock assessment by the federal government that helps set quotas for fisheries.

A contingent of city officials is headed to Washington D.C. next month for Unalaska's annual lobbying trip. 

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, they reviewed their schedule with city lobbyist Brad Gilman.

Beyond standard stops at the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters and the National Marine Fisheries Services, Gilman said this year's trip will also focus on a newer priority for Unalaska: getting high-speed internet.
