Following the release of the original forecast, we discovered a database error that prompted a re-evaluation. This most recent forecast is approximately 620 thousand fish less than the initial release.

 

A run of 26.58 million sockeye salmon can potentially produce a total harvest of 17.92 million fish with escapements near the midpoint of their escapement goals and industry is capable of taking the surplus fish. The projected harvest includes 16.86 million fish in Bristol Bay and 1.06 million fish in the South Peninsula fisheries.

Biggest cuts are in the Nushagak District.   See the full release here:
