The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has posted its final tally from a rollicking 2011 Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery.
"Seven processing companies and 48 permit holders participated in the fishery harvesting 19,429 tons of herring, slightly below the guideline harvest level of 19,490 tons," the report says.
Still no word on what, or whether, purse seiners will be paid for the catch.
