The state has set a preliminary quota of 15,674 tons of herring for next spring's Sitka Sound sac roe fishery.
That's a fairly large number.
This year, Sitka seiners and processors working as a cooperative took the full quota of 8,756 tons. The fishery ran from March 18-25.
The 2014 season yielded a harvest of 16,976 tons of herring.
