Nass Update to July 04th

2016 NASS STOCK ASSESSMENT WEEKLY UPDATE_MONDAY_4JULY

Here is the latest Nisga’a Fisheries Update to July 04th. Note the lower Nass sockeye estimated return from over 550k to 250k. DFO has closed Area 3 to commercial fishing until further notice.
The SE Alaskan sockeye catches are below average also….possibly indicating no great pulse of sockeye coming down the panhandle….Yet, DFO Prince Rupert thinks that Skeena is ready for the start of sockeye fishing and that it could be a bumper year….go figure…
