Sockeye Salmon

Good News!

Posted by Sena Wheeler on

It's usually the doom and gloom messages that come through the loudest and spread the farthest...but I have some GOOD NEWS to share with you. 

Alaska's Bristol Bay smashes all-time sockeye salmon harvest record 

'This is the largest harvest since fishing began in 1883,' said ADF&G.

Bristol Bay is currently experiencing the largest salmon run ever...EVER! That means this summer, more sockeye salmon are returning to Bristol Bay than ever before. 

No, we don't fish in Bristol Bay, or sell any Bristol Bay salmon. So why am I talking about this?

Because it's good news for the entire Alaskan fishing community. Everything is connected, we are all connected.

Large wild salmon returns are a sign of healthier rivers and oceans and a signal that generations of sustainability and regulatory efforts are taking the right steps and moving in the right direction. 

We are at the tail end of our Copper River sockeye season, and I am happy to report that we have had a good season as well. We are seeing a larger return than the last five years or so, and Rich has been very happy with the large size this year - which signifies a nice healthy stock.

The Copper River king run was also a big success. Rich says they were without a doubt the biggest and best king he has ever seen.

Spread the good news and enjoy the abundance of wild Alaskan salmon!

An abundance of wild salmon!
