The commercial setnet season was closed about a week early this year, with the season ending Sunday.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game cited the "1 percent rule" as the reason behind the closure. The rule states that if the total setnet fleet catch is less than 1 percent of the total season's catch for two consecutive days, Fish and Game has the authority to end the season.
