« Back to Kamchatka: Where the Salmon Rule, August 2009 National Geographic Magazine

A dog watches from the end of a boat as men pull nets at Ust Bolsheretsk area while fishing along the Bolshaya river.  These fishing brigades use tractors to tow one end of the net and then bring it around full circle in the river to cinch in the fish... the net is then dumped into small boats that have nets laid in them that the crane uses to pick them up and dump them into trucks that go to the processing plants in Ust Bolsheretsk.  This brigade is working south of Oktyabrski.
