Commercial Salmon Fishing 2 of 2

Commercial fishing

A test set often takes about and hour and a half and if time permits we will go closer to the boat for the last ten minutes to get a feel for the work that the fishermen do and see the results of their efforts. On this day they are looking for salmon in the net and do not see any. They pulled the nets out of the water without releasing salmon. On other days while on whales watching trips we may pull along a boom of logs or float houses being towed and often see cruise ships, large self dumping log carriers and barges taking freight to Alaska. Always something different on the Inside Passage.
