2011 Pink Salmon Run Projections in SE Alaska

The Southeast Alaska pink salmon harvest in 2011 is predicted to be in the excellent range, with a point estimate of 55 million fish (80% confidence interval: 43–67 million fish). The categorical ranges of pink salmon harvest in Southeast Alaska were formulated from the 20th, 40th, 60th, and 80th percentiles of historical harvest from 1960 to 2010:

Category Range (millions) Percentile
Poor Less than 11 Less than 20th
Weak 11 to 19 20th to 40th
Average 19 to 29 40th to 60th
Strong 29 to 48 60th to 80th
Excellent Greater than 48 Greater than 80th

All in all, 2011 promises to be another GREAT year of fishing at Yes Bay Lodge!
