Set Net Fishing
This web page will help to teach kids about set net fishing in Alaska. At this site you will learn about the early history of fishing in Alaska. You will learn about fish traps, equipment, knots and splicing. We also want to teach people about the different types of fish, the life cycle of the salmon, and how to help protect the salmon. People can also learn about mending nets and some of the hazards of this occupation. We also have included a vocabulary list of words that might be new to someone who doesn't know much about set nets or fishing.
