Bristol Bay Fisheries Report

It’s the final Bristol Bay Fisheries Report of the season! A few stories about community on our last evening together. The bay smashed expectations this season -- the total run is the fifth largest ever recorded. We see how the districts measure up in the last daily run summary of the season.

Baywide daily harvest dropped below 2 million for the first time since July 4th. The total harvest is over halfway to the pre-season forecast swimming in at 25.2 million fish.

It's the KDLG pledge drive! Please donate! Make it possible for us to provide news and info like this: The run is late this year, but it’s ramping way up across the bay. The total run passed 11 million fish yesterday, with some of the biggest harvests we’ve seen yet this season in 3 of the bay’s districts.

A big bump of fish hit the Naknek-Kvichak and Egegik yesterday -- those fleets caught most of the bay's daily harvest of nearly 1.2 million. Total harvest around the bay is now approaching 5 million, and the total run is at around 6.8 million.

Fish are picking up around the bay. The run leapt past the 4 million fish mark and is approaching 5 million, and the runs in the Naknek-Kvichak and Egegik both passed 1 million yesterday. Egegik had the largest daily harvest. In the Nushagak, the total run passed 2 million.

The total run in the bay has passed 2 million. The run in the Naknek-Kvichak is late -- that’s in line with the past five years. And there are fewer boats around the bay than the past several years. But the harvest on the east side is bigger than it has been. A boat also caught fire Saturday in the Nushagak District.

The run hit the pre-season point forecast Thursday, harvest is well beyond what was expected, and….we’re ready for a break. For our fortieth and final show, we take a look back.

The Bristol Bay total run through Tuesday -- 44.4 million. Will Wednesday be the day we hit Fish and Game’s forecast? While we wait to find out, we fast-forward to the plan for pinks and silvers, and take a trip back in time to the APA cannery in South Naknek.

Ugashik, you broke the "since we started counting" catch record. Baywide, the total run is climbing toward the pre-season forecast. And another major processor joins the 75-cent club.

Ugashik put away another 400,000 sockeye Saturday, while Naknek-Kvichak and Nushagak catches tapered off a little. Now the number everyone is wondering about? What're they going to be worth.

Did Port Moller just peak, and what does that mean for the 2016 run? We try to figure that out, and we step back to think about how much Alaskans love salmon.
