A salmon gillnetter is hauling in a nice set in Bristol Bay.

The Bristol Bay fishery is among the world's most robust and best managed, and it sustainably produces tens of millions of his-value sockeye salmon, which are treasured for their rich flavor and bright red color.

Vessels fishing in the bay use light gillnets, which they set drifting and blocking one another in one of the wildest competitive fisheries in the world. The crews work hard skating the fish loose from the gill net as fast as they can so that the net can be set again.

Tom Crestodina, an Alaskan fisherman, began making cutaway drawings in 2011 to conncect with his young son, Franio, while he was out at sea.
