Bristol Bay forecast: 30.5 million sockeye

Bristol Bay next season will produce a commercial sockeye salmon catch of 30.5 million fish, according to an Alaska Department of Fish and Game forecast issued today.

That's a really strong number.

For comparison, Bristol Bay this past summer produced a catch of 30.9 million sockeye on a forecast of 24 million.
