The Return Of The Salmon 2016
The Return Of The Salmon: An Award-winning Documentary
Each summer, millions of salmon conclude their lifelong odyssey in Alaskan rivers. It is salmon that bring life to their natal streams. While swimming upstream, they stop feeding. From the forest to the animals that live there, salmon provide essential nutrients and food. Many species harvest the seasonal bounty, including bears, wolves, eagles and ravens. This is a journey no salmon survive, for once they have spawned, they die. Each year we catch millions of salmon from the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska. Salmon support thousands of Alaskan livelihoods. They are central to the Alaskan way of life. Salmon are the lifeblood of Alaska.
Alaskan cruise tourists can choose wildlife watching as a cruise excursion when they come ashore. Watching bears catching salmon is one of the most popular things to do in Alaska for tourists.
