Another Bristol Bay Salmon Fishery Overview Video
This is another great video about working in the Bristol Bay salmon fishery. The Bristol Bay salmon fishery is high paced, high reward fishery. The season only lasts about six weeks, but during the time the commercial fishermen (salmon gillnetters) catch between 15 and 30+ million fish usually resulting in very good earnings for the boat owners and deckhand crew.
