20 million and counting

The Bristol Bay sockeye salmon harvest has topped 20 million fish.

That's substantially more than state biologists had forecast for the season — fewer than 17 million.

The total could climb a good bit higher depending on how much strength remains in the sockeye run. Hundreds of boats continue to work the bay.

Follow the daily tally here.

For you trivia buffs, the record catch in Bristol Bay was 44.3 million sockeye in 1995.
