PHOTOS OF THE WEEK: King Salmon Beauty

A rare catch from this month's Half Moon Bay commercial salmon season.

Pillar Point fisherman Jim Anderson of the Allaine boat caught a few King Salmon beauties last week near Half Moon Bay. Here, he holds it up for display in all its glory.

Commercial salmon season in Half Moon Bay will end on May 31, then pick up again from June 25 to July 5. The rest of the season for local fishermen in 2011 runs from July 9-13, July 16-20, July 23-27, July 29 - August 29, and September 1-30. Dates in October (3-7, 10-14) are restricted to fish caught between Point Reyes and Point San Pedro only and must be landed between Point Arena (south of Fort Bragg) and Pigeon Point.

The fish buyers are paying $4.00lb. to fisherman and some of retail markets are charging $25.00lb. GREED to say the least! Stop buying King Salmon at those high prices and the price will come down.
