Posted: Sunday, March 12, 2000

KODIAK (AP) -- A state Pacific cod fishery opened Saturday in the Kodiak area with a quota slightly higher than last year and prices expected to be high for the season.

The fishery has a harvest limit of 12 million pounds, up from 11.7 million pounds in 1999.

Local processors say cod prices are stable at about 40 cents a pound, making the fishery worth an estimated $5 million for the fleet of nearly 200 boats.
