My house is visible in this picture! All the white spots in the water are fishing boats, which are collecting tens of thousands of tons of Herring in Sitka Sound and Thimbleberry Bay. The Herring are sold to processors and the eggs harvested from the Herring are sold to buyers in the Far East. All the green in the water along the shore is the Herring Spawn. All of this happens over a three or four day window.
