Fish and Game has canceled king salmon fishing in Southeast Alaska for the remainder of the summer because of record-low stock production, ADF&G announced in a Monday afternoon emergency order.

Fishermen will not be able to retain king salmon in any Southeast salt waters from Aug. 10-Sept. 30. The emergency order applies to both commercial and sport fishermen.

King salmon will not be accepted at this weekend’s Golden North Salmon Derby, which will take place as planned but with some changes to awards.
