Sitka Herring 2011 is Over. Time to Scrape Some Eggs.

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.
