Low Value Placed on Togiak Sac Roe Herring Fishery

The estimated value of this year’s Togiak Herring catch is about half last years, largely because of the price.

Last year the fleet was offered $100 a ton and was later awarded an adjustment beyond that.

This year, the offer has not been disclosed, but the Fish and Game Department is using an estimate of $50 a ton. The fishery fell a little short of quota and processors shut down completely a couple of days before the opening was over.
