Status of Bristol Bay Herring Stocks in 1988. Regional Information Report 5J88-02. Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Juneau, Alaska.
Although Bristol Bay herring stocks have provided the largest sac-roe herring fishery in Alaska in recent years, stock biomass is declining rapidly because no significant recruitment to the fishery has been observed for seven years. This document describes the available stock assessment information for Bristol Bay herring stocks, reviews the current harvest policy, and describes measures that can be taken to increase the precision of estimates of stock abundance, recruitment and harvest.
