KENAI, Alaska — The Upper Cook Inlet had a scarce sockeye salmon harvest this year, but commercial fishers caught more coho, chum and pink salmon than expected, the Peninsula Clarion reported (

Fishers brought in about 1.8 million sockeye, according to the summary. Altogether, about 3 million salmon of all species were harvested, which is about 500,000 fewer than the recent 10-year average.
