Low Value Placed on Togiak Sac Roe Herring Fishery

By | June 11, 2014 - 11:03 am

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.
