The Kodiak area pink salmon harvest doubled the sockeye catch when Wednesday’s deliveries were counted. With nearly 250,000 humpies harvested, the season total for the little salmon reached 1,871,780 fish caught. The day’s total harvest of all five species amounted to a little over 350,000.

There were just over 76,000 sockeye caught on Wednesday, bumping the season harvest ever closer to the million mark for reds. The catch now stands at 921,489.

Delivered yesterday were 17,740 chum salmon, as were about 7,000 silvers and 151 kings. The season totals, respectively are now 245,000 chum, 100,000 coho and 5,000 chinook.

All-species harvest to-date is 3,143,616 salmon.
