With oil development in the Alaskan Arctic comes an influx of new vessels in the already high-traffic Bering Sea. As pipelines expand and new projects start up all around the Pacific Northwest and in Alaska, more huge tankers and other vessels are likely to generate more risk in Aleutian waters.

And that means more work for people like Dan Magone, the co-owner of Unalaska-based salvage company Resolve-Magone Marine Services. In this segment of The Exchange, he talks about how increasing vessel traffic is growing his business, and how Aleutian communities need to respond to the impacts of a burgeoning industry.
