The Secretariat prepared a table of preliminary 2010 commercial salmon
catches from documents and emails submitted to the Commission
(Table 1). The total salmon catch was 423 million fish or 913.3 thousand
tonnes, which was a reduction of approximately 20% in weight from the
historical high catch in 2009. Major catches were reported by Alaska
(372.5 thousand tonnes, 40.8%), Russia (326.6 thousand tonnes,
35.8%), and Japan (170.4 thousand tonnes, 18.7%). Pink and chum
salmon constituted the majority of the catch (43.6 and 34.3% by weight,
respectively) and sockeye salmon comprised 18.9% of the commercial
catch.
Table 1. Preliminary 2010 commercial salmon catches in Canada, Japan, Korea,
Russia, and the United States. Commercial catches by foreign fleets in the
Russian EEZ are not included. Japanese catch data are based on FRA
(Fisheries Research Agency) data sources, not official statistics.
