The commercial herring fishery is on hold in Unalaska — because no one can find the fish.
The herring season opened more than a week ago. So far, fishermen haven't had any luck, even with a spotter pilot searching from above.
"There's been no appreciable harvest at all," said Frank Kelty on the Unalaska Fisheries Report. "The fish appear to be well offshore and in very deep water where the seiners can't get to them."
