The state has set a preliminary quota of 15,674 tons of herring for next year's Sitka Sound sac roe fishery.
That's a fairly large number.
This year, seiners and processors working as a cooperative took the full quota of 8,756 tons. The fishery ran from March 18-25.
In 2014, the Sitka fishery produced a harvest of 16,976 tons of herring.
