Herring is one of the nastier fisheries for cleanup. There is something about the herring roe and its ability to stick to everything. Its a special kind of mess. The entire net needs to be cleaned out or the eggs will rot inside and weaken the meshes. The sheer amount of scales is daunting. Although, a little pressure washing goes a long way.The boats have been leaving in a steady stream all day. For many boats, long lining with be the next fishery. For the tenders, they will continue the herring run in Togiak.
