The commercial catch of king and silver salmon in California has not been sepa-
rated. Occasional samples and partial separation for a few areas are available for
a few years. The recent samples indicate that the silver salmon constituted about
9 percent by weight of the ocean catch in 1939-1942. Silver salmon are nut taken
by the Sacramento-San ,Joaquin fishery.

1 Eel, Klamalh, Mad and Smith Kivers were closed to commercial fishing in 1934.
