Commercial Fishing Photo Of The Day | Sitka Herring 2014
One of the last great derby fisheries in Sitka Alaska. Fishermen primarily focus on the roe from the spawning herring. The fishery has seen better days. The price is poor and the demand is even less. This fishery is barely holding hold. Luckily, the biomass is healthly. This is just a matter of the market changing while fishermen try to catch up.
