I used to gillnet and hand shake them. You don't know work until you tried that

It is a seine skiff. Responsibilities are to the net, typically. Basically a mini tug boat. So other duties as assigned.

The fishery is short term but extremely high value. Many millions of dollars are involved in what is typically less than 24hrs.

Short season is right. Typically we used to have 3 hour openings, and 9 hrs of fishing in the whole season in the gillnet fishery in Norton Sound. If you snooze you lose. Its very competitive too.
That was the good old days when it was a $1000. per ton for 10%

I Love me some Herring roe, on Kelp. Good stuff !

Yes they are. The boat I could be on has been gone for 22 days. Thats too long for me. Ill go longlining with shorter trips and a more reliable crew share.

Closed last night. Estimated 16,000 tons harvest. Hopefully they will get a good price.
