SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- May 1 marks the opening day of the California commercial salmon fishing season, which continues through October 15.
"2013 is predicted to be a good year for California Kings," says Aaron Newman, Chairman of the California Salmon Council. He adds, "California has traditionally been the leading producing state for troll-caught (hook-and-line) wild king salmon along the Pacific Coast. We're projected to catch 3 million pounds this season, which is an increase over last year's 2.5 million pounds."
David Goldenberg, Chief Executive Officer of the California Salmon Council says, "This season reflects fishing opportunities along the entire California coast. This is good news for consumers because there should be a steady supply of wild, ocean-caught California kings."
