Kodiak Bait Herring Opens

Jay Barrett/KMXT
The one-boat-at-a-time bait herring fishery around Kodiak Island opened today (Friday) at 10 a.m. The guideline harvest level in the two open districts is 99 tons for the South Afognak District and 180 tons in the Uganik District. The districts will remain open until further notice and be closed by emergency order by Fish and Game or when they reach their respective GHL.
In an announcement today, Fish and Game says the Eastside District could open if there is interest in harvesting its 175 ton GHL.
The fall bait herring fishery is operated in a cooperative manner, with one boat fishing for the combine at any one time.
