SITKA, ALASKA The Sitka Tribe of Alaska is backing away from a board of fish proposal that would have closed most of Sitka Sound to commercial herring fishing.
At its regular meeting Wednesday night (3-19-08), the Tribal council instead approved proposals that would cap the commercial sac roe fishery at 10-thousand tons, and include test fishing in the annual guideline harvest level.
