The fishing industry has played a huge role in Bristol Bay Borough's history and remains a major part of the area's economy today. With Bristol Bay still seeing abundant salmon runs, fishing boats and tenders unload their daily catch on the docks and piers, selling their salmon to the local processors. During peak seasons, salmon processors often operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The season usually runs from mid-May to the end of July, processing millions of fish and providing jobs for thousands of workers. Interested in learning more about working as a seafood processor?
