The Great Age of Salmon and the PAF

Sail to Alaska aboard a windjammer. Fish salmon aboard the Bristol Bay sailboats that operated at the mercy of wind and tide. Climb aboard a fish trap! This is a program history buffs, maritime enthusiasts and fishermen will love.

This documentary brings to life a fascinating era in the history of commercial fishing in the last frontier. Featuring film footage dating back to 1926 and narrated by industry pioneer Stan Tarrant, The Great Age of Salmon and the PAF is the story of the early fishing industry in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, and of the Pacific American Fisheries company of Bellingham.
