Salmon starts slow: Subsistence fisheries in danger of closing

Posted: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 9:00 am

Kodiak’s first commercial salmon opener of the year saw half as many sockeye caught as usual, according to local Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologists. 

ADF&G opened the Northwest Kodiak District for commercial fishing from noon on Saturday to 9 p.m. on Monday. The opening was based on Karluk escapement, which has turned out about normal for the early sockeye run, said James Jackson, ADF&G area management biologist.
