Togiak herring fishery kicks it up a notch

State fishery managers have released their summary of this year's Togiak sac roe herring fishery, and the bottom line looks considerably sweeter than last season.

The fleet harvested 25,432 tons of herring with an average roe content of 10.7 percent. The price for both seine and gillnet fish was the same as last season, $150 per ton, bringing the total fishery value to $3.8 million.

In 2009, the harvest tallied 17,107 tons worth $2.6 million.
