Herring Update | Canadian Fishery Gets Underway

Herring have started to spawn off the coast of Vancouver Island and the commercial fishing fleets are currently harvesting the cherished roe. Many doubts exist in the fishery since last year’s devastating tsunami in Japan. The natural disaster lead to a limited fishery in Canada last year and very low ex vessel herring prices in the Alaskan fisheries. The Canadian fisheries should give a good impression of what kind of prices to expect this year in Sitka. Enjoy the video, which sums up the situation in the canadian fishery.
