(Juneau) – The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announces that the statewide commercial salmon harvest in 2010 is projected to total 138 million salmon of all species. This is a decrease compared to 2009, with most of the decrease expected to come from lower pink salmon catches. Overall, Chinook and sockeye salmon harvests are expected to be higher than in 2009, while the coho and chum salmon harvests are expected to be similar to the actual harvests taken in 2009. This forecast would represent the 19thlargest harvest since 1960, if achieved.
