The Southeast Alaska Salmon Industry 

There are few regions and few industries as mutually-dependent as Southeast Alaska and salmon. In the remote Alaska panhandle, pristine habitat and remarkably successful conservation efforts have produced an enormous wild salmon resource that promises to sustain jobs and nourish consumers for generations to come. Each summer, sleepy Southeast Alaska villages like Ketchikan, Petersburg and Sitka are transformed into throbbing industrial arenas where tens of thousands of men and women toil in the harvesting, processing, distribution and support sectors of the salmon industry. This thirty minute documentary videotape takes you aboard the boats, into the processing plants and around the communities where the business of salmon is a way of life. DVD-Video
