There is No Place on Earth Like Bristol Bay
This is one of the few intact ecosystems left on Earth, relatively unchanged by the pressures of the outside world’s problems such as drought and population. Instead, millions of Pacific Salmon (all five species) return from the ocean each year on their journey to one of the hundreds of small streams
that feed into the Nushagak River from which they were born. These salmon run a gantlet of predators upstream to a series of massive lakes, some thirty miles long and a thousand feet deep. Eventually,
they arrive to the exact spawning bed of their birth, following their ancestor’s millennium old instinct of navigation to conclude the cycle of life. Their decaying bodies provide unbelievable volumes of nutrients to support some of the world’s largest trout and concentration of bears. This is the home of Alaska Kingfishers and it could be yours as well.
