The Alaska Department of Fish and Game was optimistic in 1988 when estimating that of all the pink salmon spawned in southeastern Alaska, 38 million would return to be harvested. They waited and waited, but only 8 million showed up. The return was better in 1989, although four hatcheries in southeast Alaska got back only 18,087 coho salmon from 1.43 million released--only 1.26%. Where did all the salmon go? Salmon pirates got them, said SEACOPS and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
