We now hear that one major Bristol Bay salmon processor, Alaska General Seafoods, is paying a base price of $1.20 per pound plus 15 cents for chilled fish.
Other major processors are apparently also paying $1.20.
That's the word from AIFMA, the Alaska Independent Fishermen's Marketing Association.
Most likely, this price will disappoint Bristol Bay fishermen. Coming into the season, many expected $2 per pound or more for sockeye.
