No go for West Behm Canal herring

Sitka isn't the sac roe herring fishery to come to a less than satisfying conclusion this week.

The Department of Fish and Game yesterday announced that the West Behm Canal purse seine fishery won't open this year.

The announcement cites the lack of a large enough buildup of mature herring to a support commercial fishing.

The preseason quota was 748 tons.
