Pacific Herring continued to spawn in the North Bay last week, primarily in Paradise Cove and along the Tiburon waterfront areas. The commercial herring fleet landed approximately 244 tons of herring by Friday at noon, when the fishery closed for the weekend. A new spawn was reported at Ferry Point in Richmond on Saturday, which follows a progression similar to last year.
