The Sitka Sac Roe herring fishery happens every spring. The 48-member fleet fished for nearly two weeks last year, catching 14,000 tons – or roughly 20% – of the herring population. (Emily Kwong/KCAW photo)

On Monday (01-15-17), the Board of Fish will open their session on finfish and take public comment on all proposals.

While the news department will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, KCAW Reporter Emily Kwong will be live-tweeting testimonies and other information from the meeting.
