  WDFW -- WA State Forage Fish: Pacific Herring
Herring were included in the 1974 "Boldt Decision" regarding Native American fishing rights, and local stocks and fisheries are cooperatively monitored and managed by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and local area Tribal governments.
Herring spawning stock size fluctuations are primarily influenced by ecological factors that affect survival, and to a smaller extent growth.
Therefore, conservation of herring spawning habitat, and minimizing disturbance in the prespawning holding areas is key to the preservation of the herring stocks inside Puget Sound.

 Herring Fisheries Home Page: Division of Commercial Fisheries - Alaska Fish and Game
Gulf of Alaska herring are genetically distinct from Bering Sea herring (Grant and Utter 1984) and are smaller and non-migratory, generally moving less than 100 miles among spawning, feeding, and wintering grounds.
Reduction fisheries which “reduce” herring to meal and oil began initially in Southeast Alaska, where a plant at Killisnoo in Chatham Strait was producing 30,000 gallons of herring oil annually by 1882.
The commercial catch of herring for bait in Alaska began around 1900 and remained relatively stable, typically 4–6 million lb (1,800–2,700 mt) per year, in spite of very large fluctuations in the herring catch for the reduction, foreign, and sac roe fisheries.

 The Herring
The herring has smooth gill covers, and moderately blunt keel scales along the edge of the belly, whereas the pilchard and the shads have radiating lines on the gill covers, and the sprat has pointed keel scales that feel prickly when a finger is run along the belly.
Herring are not normally gutted at sea, because it is impracticable to handle the large numbers of small fish coming aboard in a short time; chilling or freezing soon after capture is therefore all the more important to prevent spoilage.
Herring can be frozen satisfactorily in vertical plate freezers in blocks 50-100 mm thick; in one method an open polythene bag is placed between the plates, herring are poured into the bag, and the voids in the block filled with water.

 The California Herring Fishery: An example of success and sustainability   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The annual return of Pacific herring to San Francisco Bay supports a commercial fishery which is considered to be one of the last urban fisheries in America.
Because Pacific herring are relatively short-lived (maximum age is nine for San Francisco Bay herring) the success (or survival) of each year’s cohort (or crop) of new fish has a large influence on determining the size of the population.
Herring abundance is closely tied to Bay and ocean productivity, which, in turn, affects the abundance of zooplankton, a main food source for herring.

In fact, as a forage fish, they were to lake trout and other aquatic predators what the rabbit has always been to land predators.
In the last century, herring provided some of the largest catches from the Great Lakes and, when salted down or smoked for preservation, provisioned much of the developing country.
However, with the alewife and smelt in decline in the 1980s, herring populations are once more thriving near the Apostle Islands and other regions of western Lake Superior, where Minnesota is stocking them.

 Auke Bay Laboratory Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Research - Pacific Herring: Review and Synthesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Reproductive condition of herring in Prince William Sound was assessed in 1995; adult herring and eggs were also experimentally exposed to oil.
In laboratory tests, pre-spawn herring were negatively impacted by exposure to oil, principally by suppression of the immune system and increased expression of disease.
In contrast, exposure of incubating eggs to comparably weathered oil caused significant morphological defects at 9 ppb, and effects of more weathered oil were significant at concentrations as low as 0.2 ppb polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons; chromosomal aberrations were observed at 0.7 ppb.

 Discovery Channel :: News - Animals :: Whales Slap Flatulent Prey
June 20,2006 — Norwegian killer whales slap their tails underwater to disorient and kill herring, which sometimes defend themselves from the assault by disappearing under the cover of their own bubbly flatulence, according to a new study.
The study is one of two papers presented at the recent Acoustical Society of America Meeting in Rhode Island that addressed some of the clever techniques whales employ to catch their dinner.
As for the herring flatulence, Diachok agreed the fish may do this to facilitate escape, but he said it also might just be inadvertent.

The fish were caught locally and transferred to large laboratory tanks where their behavior was monitored using hydrophones and infrared video cameras.
What seems to trigger the noise is darkness and high fish densities, suggesting that herring use farting as a means of communication.
Herring may use an unusual form of communication—flatulence—to form protective shoals at night without giving away their location to predators, according to a recent study.

 History of US foreign policy since World War II | International Communist Current
Even before the end of the war the American bourgeoisie was already preparing for the formation of a military bloc for the anticipated future confrontation with Stalinist Russia.
For example, some bourgeois commentators (Painter, Herring) have argued that the civil war in Greece in 1944 was a precursor of the future US-Russian confrontation.
This preoccupation with a future confrontation with Russian imperialism could be seen in the bickering and delays over the Allied invasion of Europe to relieve pressure on Russia by opening a second front in the west.

 Herring Fishery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Considered one of the best state-managed fisheries in the country by the September 1999 issue of National Fisherman magazine, the commercial herring fishery is one of the few fisheries in California that undergo annual population assessments and subsequent regulatory change.
Like other short-lived coastal pelagic species, Pacific herring abundance fluctuates widely due to variable recruitment (the success of each year-class of new fish), making annual population assessments necessary for effective management.
Conservative harvest levels, careful control of the fishery since the early 1970s, and input from industry and other constituents, have also contributed to the success of this fishery.
