    Default comm fish numbers

    Anyone know where I could find out the number of sockeyes the commercial fisherman have taken that were bound for the kenai?

    I think it's pretty well impossible to get exact numbers for each watershed, since they tend to school up together as they move up the inlet. See your post in dipnetting section for a link to the total numbers.

    You pretty much have to wait until the ICE reports are released. As they offload the fish at the dock, an agent asks each fish where his destination was. It takes 'em awhile to count up the slime marks from that process.

    Or, you can speculate on this data all you want... http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm...lmon.bluesheet

    Course, if they are illegally immigrating fish, we automatically give them more rights than native fish and pay for their "school"....

    But seriously folks... if an ICE agent did show up at the processor's dock, the place would resemble a ghost town in a matter of moments and the Japanese wouldn't get their fish cleaned!!!
