Indie Alaska

I am a Hooligan Fisherman

Video duration: 5:58

Alaska is known for its abundant salmon fisheries, but few outsiders have ever heard of the yearly hooligan runs. These fish earned the name "candlefish" from being so fat during spawning, with up to 15% of total body weight in fat, that if caught, dried, and strung on a wick, it can be burned as a candle. Local subsistence fisherman Warren Jones is a father, a recent college grad, and a Marine.
