NORTH PACIFIC SALMON CATCHES REMAIN HIGH IN THE EAST BUT DECLINE IN THE WEST Khabarovsk, Russia (May 25, 2018) – The North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission (NPAFC) announced preliminary North Pacific-wide total salmon catches for 2017, as reported by its member countries Canada, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the United States. Pacific salmon abundance in the North Pacific, as indexed by aggregate commercial catches, remains at near all-time high levels, although catches have declined during the past decade. A total of 920 thousand metric tonnes (460.7 million fish) was caught in 2017, less than recent odd-numbered years. Salmon catches tend to be higher in odd than even-numbered years because the most frequent species in the catch, pink salmon, are more abundant in odd-numbered years. READ MORE
