Where Water is Gold

Where Water is Gold: Life and Livelihood in Alaska’s Bristol Bay explores the history, culture, economy, and science of a water-rich region that supplies half of the world’s wild sockeye salmon supply. Based on five years of fieldwork by Anchorage photographer Carl Johnson, it explores the incredible scenery and abundant wildlife of the region, the traditional subsistence way of life of its residents, the economic powerhouse that is the commercial fishing industry, and the rich and diverse recreational opportunities of the region from fly fishing to bear viewing. It also includes an exploration of the history of mineral exploration and the opposition to the development of the Pebble Mine.
