The table below should be beneficial for Friday’s call-in show dealing with king salmon conservation and the discussion of equitable harvest opportunity throughout the Kuskokwim drainage.
Looking at the 10-year average from 2001 to 2010, here’s the breakdown as to what particular portion of the subsistence king harvest occurred in the different sections of river:
86% of the subsistence king salmon harvest occurred between, and including, the villages of Tuntatuliak and Tuluksak
Bethel alone harvested 33% of the king salmon harvested during that same 10-yr period
The middle river villages harvested 9%
The upper river villages harvested 4%
