2016 Southeast Alaska Chinook Salmon Quota

ADF&G announced the 2016 All Gear harvest limit of 355,600 treaty Chinook (non-Alaska hatchery produced) under the provisions of the Pacific Salmon Treaty. The preseason allocations are:
Troll – 263,197
Seine – 15,291
Drift Gillnet – 10,312
Set Gillnet – 1,000
Sport – 65,799
This is in comparison to a not agreed upon under the treaty preseason goal of 237,000 in 2015 and treaty all gear quota in 2014 of 439,400. The Columbia Rive exceeded forecasted levels last year and large Chinook returns are again forecasted for those systems and are reflected in this year’s all gear harvest allocation.
