Alaska commercial fishing news and notes
Can't stop these little salmons
Bering Sea silver
...norwegian atlantic herring fishermen can get between $500 - $1,000/tonne depending on size, season, oil content etc.fishermen, don't rely on your buyers to tell you that your herring is only worth $50 - $100/tonne...or $.025/lb. to $.05/lb. that's still like fishing getting paid back in the day right example of how to get out and tell your story - https://www.herring.fromnorway.com/
Togiak herring will certainly sell to Japan for under 900/ton for 10% roe. Considering the tender cost is around 225/ton, and processing costs in Naknek probably around 350/ton it is hard to figure how a seiner would get 500 to 1000/ton for their catch.
there's always a way
why don't you tell us how genius
if fishermen like getting paid what they're paid, then continue to do what they do...if fishermen want to make more, then they need to market, market market, explore what's out theree - - don't rely on the same 'ol same 'ol ---- operating like its still the good ol days aint workin. it may work for the non-in-region fishermen that participate in the herring fishery but for those that want to play, it takes time, effort, a desire and money to get out there and disrupt the current way of doin biz. if there's just talk and complaining and no action then it'll be what it is and, well that'll be it right?
