    Jun 20, 2018 | Alaska Journal of Commerce

    Annual first fish celebrations for the Copper River salmon season opening were shortlived in 2018 as near-record low returns of sockeye have shut down commercial fishing since three periods in mid-May, and sport and dipnet fishing as of June 13. Just less than 26,000 sockeyes have been harvested after state biologists had expected more than 1 million to be caught this year. Copper River sockeye fishermen are facing historic low returns this year, prompting some commercial fisherman to target other species elsewhere in Prince William Sound, and leaving others waiting onshore in what is usually a profitable fishery to the tune of $15 million or more in ex-vessel value.
