Waiting and worrying in Sitka

Checking roe maturity. Melati Kaye photo for KCAW-FM

As we wait for the start of the always frenetic Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery, radio station KCAW-FM in Sitka and reporter Melati Kaye are providing some great insights on herring market conditions.

Many worry the herring price could be down substantially this season because of the troubles in Japan, the main market for herring roe.

My thanks to Melati and KCAW for allowing Deckboss to post one of her fine photos.

Here's the latest fishery update from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
