Ten-year-old Henri Dochtermann, son of veteran Bristol Bay harvester Shawn Dochtermann, of Kodiak, Alaska, celebrates a good catch of wild sockeye salmon in the Egegik District of the Bay during the height of the run. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Blue Sheet calculated the preliminary Bristol Bay harvest through mid-August at nearly 60 million sockeyes, including over 16 million red salmon from the Egegik District.
