Fishery stocks for most species continue to be strong under state management, according to staff reports heard yesterday at the Alaska Board of Fisheries meeting, which continues in Sitka today. The 2008 sockeye runs on the Situk river near Yakutat was one exception — sockeye returns there were the lowest seen since 1960. Most of the fish runs in the Yakutat area come from the Situk River.
