Sitka Herring 2012 | First Opener


After a really long wait in Sitka, fishermen have finally started harvesting this year’s massive herring quota. The total catch for the day hasn’t quite been tallied, but guesstimates are around 4500 tons. The possibility of another fishery is very unlikely for tomorrow, since the total harvest is so huge. Typically, there is a day off between fisheries for the processors to unload all the boats. Enjoy the video and stayed tuned for updates from the fishery.
