Sockeye Set in the Bay
A salmon gillnetter is hauling in a nice set in Bristol Bay.
The Bristol Bay fishery is among the world's most robust and best managed, and it sustainably produces tens of millions of his-value sockeye salmon, which are treasured for their rich flavor and bright red color.
Vessels fishing in the bay use light gillnets, which they set drifting and blocking one another in one of the wildest competitive fisheries in the world. The crews work hard skating the fish loose from the gill net as fast as they can so that the net can be set again.
There will be 500 signed numbered prints in this limited edition.
