    Question Is this Legal?

    I am not sure where to get it but I would first check to make sure it is legal.
    I know there are rules against harvesting kelp and seaweed in Cook Inlet.
    I know you just want the eggs but if you need to harvest the kelp to get the eggs it would be good to know if it is legal to do so.
    I had heard from a friend that some people were harvesting a lot of kelp and scraping the roe off of it and the state was worried it might get out of hand .

    BTW anyone know who regulates this and where to find the regs regarding harvest of kelp and herring roe.
    I am personally not interested in harvest of roe myself but it would be good to know.

    harvesting kelp without a "Roe on Kelp" permit is illegal

    Check subsistence regulations

    I know in sitka and yakutat most people who harvest herring eggs sink hemlock branches before the herring spawn.
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Herring will spawn dang near anywhere

    You had to be careful in San Fran Bay while gillnetting that you didn't set too close to the shoreline. They would lay thier eggs on the net and dang near sink them. Besides it ruined the nets.
