Commercial Fishing Photo Of The Day | Sitka Herring Co-Op
The Sitka Herring Fishery looks ahead at hard times after a few seasons of booming harvests. Sitka is expecting a much smaller run this year, so boats will split the quota among the permit holders. Basically, one of the most exciting rodeo competitive fisheries has ended not with a bang, but a whimper. The future is uncertain, but this year’s herring harvest isn’t much to be excited about.
