A highly fertile species, Pacific herring can be found from the Californian coast to Japan.
Pacific herring spawn throughout the year, but most typically during the earlier months. Since they do not die after spawning, Pacific herring can breed in successive years.
Pacific herring can be found in intertidal and sub-tidal environments, such as submerged vegetation. Our Pacific herring is harvested in the Sea of Okhotsk.
Pacific herring is caught with a mid-water pelagic trawl (OTM).
The total catch of Pacific herring has been:
