Commercial Fishing for coho salmon in the Nushagak district is set to open at 9 a.m. Thursday and Togiak Seafoods will be buying. General Manager Voita Novak says one tender, the Sea Trek II left Togiak at about 4 a.m Wednesday, headed to the Nushagak. Novak is asking fisherman to contact the tender Thursday morning on Channel 72.
"They need to first call the tender, let them know they're fishing. We need to know how many boats will fish so we know we can manage the fishery and everyone will be happy," said Novak.
