The Sitka Sac Roe Herring officially started yesterday at 1:45.  Numerous boats tested their nets one last time in the early morning, before the fishery got underway.  Fishermen are extremely determined to harvest the entire quota after last season’s lackluster harvest.  The fish seem to be spawning fast and early, it should be interesting to see how the harvest develops this season.  Price is pretty much at its lowest ever, fishermen are receiving 150 up front and will hope for a better price as the fish goes to market.
