I must admit, I have a pretty rockstar crew. Proud to share a 52-foot boat with these three.

The movements of commercial fishing are particularly repetitive -- the motions of making a set, stacking the net, and loading salmon into the fish hold blurring the days of the week together. Those moments that make us feel alive stand out from the fog of our recurring routines as fishermen and keep us going; heavy nets brimming with strong wild salmon, a bright sockeye salmon filleted up for dinner, late nights in our favorite bay building a big fire on the beach, and the alluring unknown of what tomorrow holds. | In Pursuit of Pink Salmon, this week's story with @marthastewart.

Oh man, what a day! Blue skies on Pink Salmon Derby Day makes for some pretty special memories. I've been helping with this event since high school and this year is the first year I really get to benefit the rewards from this very special community service that the Kiwanis does. Silas and Juliana had a blast and all day long I saw how cool of a family event this is - the parents fully engaged with their kids teaching them how to fish! 🐟 Plus we got to see a cute bear! 🐻 #salmonlife #salmonlove

Just some early morning metal harvest with a smoky #sunrise. #salmonlife

MOST RECENT

The weather was crappy but the jellyfish were few, and I was so excited to spend a day seining after many years. I started doing leads on the Ocean Cape when I was 13, so it felt serendipitous to be fishing next to them today. Working outside and being on the ocean with family is something I've missed.

Change is hard....even for a nomad, I feel the struggle. We leave Alaska tomorrow and I really can't wait to be back home in our truck, rolling across the country again. But, whew, transitions are draining and I'm wrestling with saying goodbye to this area and the influence it has on me. I'll be back of course.....
Salmon have taught me more about love and life than I ever thought possible. So many lives revolve around these strong swimmers returning from the ocean. And I don't believe we should treat this cycle as a given. As humans we take so damn much for granted. It's sobering to think that salmon could take the worst nature could throw at them for millions of years- from floods to volcanic eruptions- but that little more than a century of exposure to the side effects of Western civilization could drive them to the edge of extinction.
All good things are wild and free. We must protect them. β€’

This inspiring poster was created in a local Port Moody neighbourhood, talking about the importance of keeping our waterways clean and clear for salmon. Thank you @emilyastory for sending this my way! #makeitfishfriendly #salmonlife #saveourslough #cleanwater #beautifulbc #waterislife #swimdrinkfish #portmoody #community

Citizen science in full effect today! Diodor caught 3 salmon in his net and provided samples for ECO's salmon research study. The whirlpacks with the tissue samples are in the bottom left corner of this picture. We are measuring the fork length of each fish, identifying the species, and removing the adipose fin and a small square of skin from the back left side of the fish. The DNA stored in the fin can tell us more about the origins of these salmon, and the scales from the piece of skin can tell us their age (sort of like tree rings). After the fish are cut open we can figure out whether they are male or female (one of the fish here had eggs in it!). All the information we are collecting will help us to know more about the salmon that enter the Salt Lagoon. Thanks to all the fishermen/women helping us to collect samples! Please keep contacting us, we couldn't make this happen without you!
