SITKA, ALASKA
Although biologists saw little predator activity in the southern part of the survey, northern waters showed fairly high concentrations of sea lions: 17 at Lisianski Point, 18 at Crosswise Island, 25 sea lions in the Siginaka Islands, and 110 in Salisbury Sound. Biologists also observed six whales off of Halibut Point, and six in St. John the Baptist Bay.

The department’s research vessel, Kestrel, is expected to be underway from Petersburg to Sitka within the next seven days. Test fishing and sampling will begin once it arrives.

The guideline harvest level this spring for the sac roe herring fishery is 19,490 tons. The department plans to fly its next survey on Wednesday.
