Slow start for salmon in Kodiak

Posted: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 9:00 am | Updated: 9:13 am, Wed Jun 12, 2019.

Just 16,000 sockeye salmon were caught over the weekend, during Kodiak’s first opener of the 2019 commercial salmon season. 

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game opened the Northwest District of Kodiak for 57 hours, from noon Friday to 9 p.m. Sunday, after surveys and escapement levels suggested that a strong start might be on the cards for the early-run sockeye. According to ADF&G Kodiak Area Management Biologist James Jackson, levels of harvest thus far has been “less than spectacular.”
