Dominic Neiri, a fellow southeast Alaskan seiner, has created an incredible photo record from the legendary salmon season of 2103. The e-book is entitled “Neverland.” Dominic offered me an early sneak peek of the project and I love his perspective. It’s fascinating to see familiar scenery with such a uniquely different artistic perspective. Check out all the details at www.lifeofdom.com. Please, make sure to purchase a copy of the e-book. These images are just a taste, the e-book contains a whopping 148 pages! Thanks, Dom, for reminding how amazing our job really is!

If you are a commercial fishermen and you have a creative project or an off season business that you would like to share, I would love hear from you. I would like to start a new section on the website focusing on the talents of our fellow fishermen called Crew Spotlight.
