Commercial Fishing Seasons in Alaska


A lot of the searches on this site are about the fishing seasons and the price of fish.  Here is a timetable of all the fisheries in Alaska.  Its a bit harder to find the lastest ex vessel prices.  I haven’t found a good source of current ex vessel prices.  I would love some feedback on this.

  1. 2009 ex-vessel prices can be found on the Alaska Dept of Fish & Game website. 2010 preliminary prices are still a couple months away. This is to allow time for all the 2010 data to be entered and then to scrutinize/edit the data before publishing a summary of it. Final ex-vessel prices are out in late summer/fall. This is because the season-end adjustments (retros) are included in the final prices, and the processors are not required to report until mid April. Then allow time for all the data to be entered and to scrutinize/edit the data before publishing a summary of it. Preliminary ex-vessel prices are sometimes found on the ADF&G website before June; final ex-vessel prices are found in late August. The Feds do publish IFQ halibut and sablefish ex-vessel prices; the 2010 prices for those 2 species are in the Federal Register for December 10, 2010.
