This Alaska fishing season offered something extraordinary – we were treated with multiple close-up sightings of 5 to 8.5 foot salmon sharks in shallow clear water, plus we witnessed some of these sharks blowing up on schools of salmon along a deep shoreline, launching themselves full body out of water!
Very big news today regarding the campaign to protect Bristol Bay. The major partner behind the proposed Pebble Mine has decided to exit the project.
