  • ALASKA FISH WARS

DESCRIPTION

During the Alaskan summer, 400 vessels with unrelenting captains race out into 40,000 square mile Cook Inlet to fish for wild Alaskan salmon. During these few short weeks, fishermen must make their entire yearly wage while facing 20 foot tides, 30 hour work days, mechanical breakdowns, strict regulations and unpredictable weather. Captains and crews strategize, often working in teams to locate the elusive schools of salmon and move in quickly to secure a share of a 98 million dollar payday.
