Salmon off the coast of California appear to be rebounding, with forecasts indicating this year’s season could be the best since 2013, the Golden Gate Salmon Association (GGSA) reported Wednesday.

The salmon restoration coalition predicts 379,632 adult Sacramento Valley salmon are in the ocean off California, compared to 229,400 a year ago.

“This suggests a return to relatively plentiful salmon fishing in 2019 is likely,” said Michael Coates, public relations official for the agency.

Pacific Fisheries Management Council officials will now use this forecast and other information to set times and areas open to both sport and commercial ocean salmon fishing for 2019.
