Thanks for the update and congrats on the move. It’s funny that the older I get the less it matters what age my friends are. But I suppose my closest friends are all within 5 years of me.

How much do you rely on the abundance of salmon as a good source? Is this a hobby or for practical survival?

As long as you can share some interests right?! Haha

As for the salmon it is a pretty large part of the way we feed ourselves up here. I try as much as I possibly can to rely on myself for the food I consume so foraging, growing, hunting, and fishing are a pretty big part of my "grocery shopping". Since there are only two people in my home that I need to feed (plus a doggo) the salmon runs have always been enough for me to fill my freezer. Some years it just takes more work/time on the water. The impact will be felt most by native Alaskan communities and the commercial district which, obviously, require a lot more fish than me!
