calendar flipped to July the Kodiak area salmon harvest went over 1-million
fish. Almost 56,000 were harvested on Sunday, with more than half of those,
about 32,000, chum salmon. There was just under 20,000 sockeye and almost 4,000
Monday were a little less at 38,000, with more than half sockeye. About 30,000
salmon were caught Tuesday, with 17,000 of them sockeye.
As we well
know, fish don't take a holiday, so fishermen were working on the 4th
of July, hauling in an all-species catch of 45,583 salmon. Of that total,
31,500 were reds, bringing the sockeye over 800,000. The chum
catch is still strong, and still edging out the humpy catch.
