ADF&G Salmon Forecasts for 2013
By Ernie Weiss, AEB Natural Resources Director
According to the Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G), the 2013 estimated forecast for the South Alaska Peninsula pink salmon total run is 7.3 million fish, and the harvest is expected to be 5.7 million. ADF&G considers that to be an average harvest. A harvest of less than 5 million pink salmon for the region is considered weak or poor, and 5 to 7.2 million is considered average. More than 7.2 million is a strong run, and a harvest of greater than 9.3 million pinks is described as excellent.
