Here's the official summary of the recently concluded Togiak sac roe herring season.
As previously reported, the catch was impressive at 28,808 tons.
The estimated grounds price was not so impressive at $100 per ton for both seine and gillnet fish. That puts the ex-vessel value of the fishery at $2.88 million.
It's possible, of course, that post-season adjustments could improve the payoff for fishermen.
Farther north, the Norton Sound sac roe herring fishery opens at 6 this evening. Icy details here.
