The' last bulletin of the FUh
and Wildlife Service indicated tiie
southeastern pack is exceeding
half a million cases a week. Con
tinuance of that pace would put
the total well over a million and
a half cases for southeastern
alone through Saturday, or al
most twice last year's total of
640.774 cases. The southeastern
total through Aug. 27 was 1.041,
800. The heavy runs came as a sur
prise. Expectations had been for
a I i pht season.
The runs have been so heavy,
however, that many plants are
not using the fish from traps im
mediately, but are leaving them
for brailing later, after seiners
make their final deliveries this
weekend. This would allow plants
to operate at least one week long
er and possibly put the southeast
ern pack above 2.000.000 cases.
A southeastern pack of around
2.150.000 will be needed to send
the Alaska total above 4,000,000
