Bristol Bay Fisheries Report, July 12, 2016


PMTF fishes its last (and we've got the numbers), Paul Salomone on Egegik/Ugashik, and Icicle's Warner Lew analyzes the run and predicts the peak. 

Our 2016 membership drive is underway! KDLG needs your financial pledge to keep the BBFR and the rest of our programming on the air. We're proud of the work we do as the only news team in Bristol Bay, and this week is your chance to show your support. Click the "Donate" tab, or call us at 907-842-5281.

Tonight, we run down the last Port Moller Test Fishery catches, and data analyst Michael Link discusses the end of that season. ADF&G's Paul Salmone offers thoughts on Egegik and Ugashik. And Icicle's Bristol Bay fleet manager helps analyze the run timing and size, and how to handle another big, late run.
