I was working on putting salmon into jars tonight, and as I often do while packaging and preserving our catch, I was reflecting on where my food came from and what it went through to make it to my plate. As I was working through my sockeye from the Kenai and Fish Creek, it occurred to me that for the first time I was putting a few pink salmon into jars from Prince William Sound. I don't usually target pinks, but while trolling for silvers in July we boated a few pinks that were so fresh that we had to keep 'em for the winter. As I thought through this, Fullbush came to mind. The man takes some heat on here, but as he's fond of pointing out, as a gillnetter in PWS he contributes a portion of his paycheck to PWSAC which stocks most of the pinks that return to PWS. There might be some issues with the numbers of pinks that they put in the ocean to compete with other endemic species, but as one who will be eating the bounty of the PWS pinks this summer, Fullbush, sir, my hat is off to you. Cheers!
