2020 Preliminary Alaska Commercial Salmon Harvest - Blue Sheet

The Blue Sheet reports cumulative salmon harvest during the commercial fishing season in thousands of fish. Historically, this information was updated each Friday between mid-May and September. Beginning with the 2013 season, these harvest estimates will be updated twice daily. Please note, inseason harvest estimates published in this report are preliminary and subject to change. Confidential catch information is not included in these cumulative totals. Questions about methods and individual estimates should be directed to the fishery area management biologists.

For more information on the Blue Sheet, inseason summaries, and harvest timing charts please see our Blue Sheet, Inseason Summary, and Harvest Timing Charts Overview page.
