Sockeye salmon fishing in Bristol Bay Alaska on board the F/V Dr. Jack in July 1998
Gillnet fishing boats jockey for positions to make a set  for sockeye salmon during ebb tide on the North Line fishing boundary of Egegik River in Bristol Bay, Alaska in July 1996.  Bristol Bay is home to the world's largest sockeye salmon fishery managed by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.  It is a sustainable fishery.  The commercial salmon drift gillnet fishing fleet is limited to boats no longer than 32 feet in length.  There were over 1,800 permanent entry permits listed in 2002 required by every boat.  Typically boats fish with two or three deckhands.  Peak of the season is around July 4th in this fishery which lasts about a month. The rivers also get a fair amount of chum, king, and chinook salmon.  Bristol Bay is located in the southwest part of Alaska.
