Bristol Bay salmon forecast to be corrected

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game today issued this advisory:

It has recently come to our attention that a newly developed database program used to generate data for the 2014 Bristol Bay forecast had an error in the catch computation.

Once corrected, the changes are likely to reduce the forecast to westside Bristol Bay: Nushagak and Togiak districts. The forecast to eastside Bristol Bay districts is unlikely to change.

A revised 2014 forecast should be available by the middle to end of next week.
