Picking the Net

Description:
One of the most valuable natural resources in this state is the salmon that swim up the rivers every summer to go spawn in the lakes and streams of inland Alaska. Waiting for these fish before they can reach their destination, is a fleet of hundreds of Bristol Bay fishermen. They catch the fish by setting gill nets in the water to trap the fish, pull them into their boats, and then pick them out so they can deliver the fish to a processor.
