Fish and Game Will be Cautious in the Ugashik District This Season

Bristol Bay’s massive sockeye salmon fishery is still a couple of months away but stakeholders are getting ready. That includes the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which last month published the 2014 outlook for commercial salmon fishing in Bristol Bay. The outlook includes the details about the forecast and how the Department intends to manage each of Bristol Bay’s 5-commercial fishing districts. KDLG’s Mike Mason has this preview of the Ugashik District.

This story includes the comments of ADF&G Area Management Biologist Paul Salomone.
