Fisheries update: Herring and Roe on Kelp

Metlakatla Aquatics Resources (formerly Metlakatla Fisheries) would like to inform the membership that there have been large schools of herring, and several sites of herring spawn observed outside of the community. Members are advised to set their branches and boughs in the sites soon if they would like to harvest roe.

Sites are as follows:

Active spawn observed around Pearl Harbour Island group with an estimated length of 2.4 nm. Spot spawn on Flat top Island, Mist Island, along the western shore of Burnt Cliff and South Island.
