Combat Fishing (eps. 3)

Imagine the opportunity to catch MILLIONS of fish, but having only 10 minutes in which to net them. This is not an unusual scenario in the Sitka Sound herring fishery, where 14,700 tons of fish are landed within a week. Up to 75 boats share tight boundaries in a dramatic battle to land incredible volumes of fish; one set could fill up four or five 100-foot fish packing boats. That shakes down to big bucks and big action as these captains weave their 50-foot boats around—and sometimes into—their competitors. All this action takes place amidst views of high mountains, active volcanoes and heavily forested hillsides dropping down to shorelines of rock and breaking sea. There is no other fishery that provides such breathtaking beauty, and such blatant competition, all in the pursuit of precious herring eggs.
