Commercial sockeye harvesters on the Fraser River are enjoying a decent fishery so far this season, after dramatic fluctuations in their catch in recent years.

"We're doing a bit better than expected," said Christina Burridge, the executive director of the BC Seafood Alliance, which represents commercial fisheries.

Although the sockeye run is late this year, "the quality of the fish has been very good," she said Wednesday.

In 2009, the sockeye return on the Fraser "was the worst in a hundred years," Burridge said, whereas last year it was surprisingly good.
