Fish by the book
Facts & Figures
From the so-called purse-seine-boats the fishermen search for schools of salmon. When they find one, they put a net around it. When they pull the net down, it forms a basket around the school.
Thanks to Craig
Craig is named after Craig Miller, who started a salting establishment for fish on the neighbouring Fish Egg Island in 1907 and a fish packing factory in Craig. The village is deep in the south of Alaska, on an island near the Canadian border, and is habited by about 1200 people - mainly fishermen, fish processors and carpenters.
