Its time to clean out the nets! Sitka herring 2010 is over.

At 5:30 on April 2nd, ADFG declared the season over.  The total harvest was17,743 tons, just under the guideline of 18,293.  The fishery started on the 28th and consisted of 4 openers.  A number of boats did well,  including the F/V Mickey H who had a set for over 600 tons.   So, spring is officially here!  Happy Easter!   Here’s a great slideshow from the Sitka Sentinel
