Never seen as many commercial boats fishing this area before. Went to P.A. yesterday and was surprised to see 3 dozen or more commercial boats with nets I'm the water. What are they fishing for?

Probably not much of that going to Japan, they tend to prefer the top shelf stuff.  I think it gets canned and smoked and goes to Europe and other parts of Asia.  There sure isn't much of a demand for it in the US.

The roe goes to Japan. That is by far the most value in chums.

Yes this is for Ikura! Very highly prized in Russian and Japanese culture.
