As commercial salmon fishing season wraps up for the summer, numbers recently released by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game show a tale of two species.

Statewide chum salmon harvests broke a record this year while harvest levels for king salmon dipped to the lowest ever recorded, according to preliminary numbers.

It all added up to what ADFG is calling a “banner year” for commercial salmon fishermen in the state.

As of Oct. 2, fishermen harvested 224.6 million wild salmon of all species, weighing in at 1,041,000,000 pounds.
