The Bristol Bay sockeye catch now stands at almost 27 million fish, or about 10 million more than state biologists expected for the season.
Daily production has held steady at around 1 million fish for the past week.
Of the bay's five fishing districts, the Naknek-Kvichak zone has been the star with a tally of more than 13 million sockeye.
Still no word on what processors intend to pay gillnetters for the fish.
