Plenty of herring available at Togiak in 2011

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game today forecast a potential harvest of 24,805 tons of herring in next spring's Togiak sac roe fishery.

That would be close to the 25,432 tons that purse seiners and gillnetters took this past spring.

The herring are valued for their eggs, or roe, marketed almost entirely in Japan.
