Another big bite of Sitka herring

Sitka Sound herring seiners had another crack at the fish yesterday, bagging an estimated 4,000 tons, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said in this update.

That brings the total harvest for the season to 13,600 tons, leaving about 4,700 tons remaining on the 18,293-ton catch limit.

The fleet won't fish today, giving processors time to gobble down yesterday's catch, Fish and Game said.
