Prodigious Togiak herring forecast announced

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is forecasting 30,056 tons of herring will be available for harvest in next spring's Togiak sac roe fishery.

That's a gigantic number, far higher than this year's quota of 21,622 tons. The industry, however, took only 17,226 tons.
