Big Bristol Bay sockeye catch forecast for 2011

Look for a potential harvest of 27.7 million sockeye salmon next year at Bristol Bay.

That's the forecast fresh out from the University of Washington Fisheries Research Institute.

If the prediction holds true, it would approach this past season's excellent catch of 28.6 million sockeye.

We should see the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's forecast any day now.

Deckboss tips his hat to the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association for sharing the FRI forecast.
