The annual Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) preseason survey of Bristol Bay sockeye salmon processing capacity is complete. Results indicate that there will be adequate processing capacity for the number of sockeye salmon expected to be available for harvest during the 2011 Bristol Bay season.
