A short film by Paul Klaver about the wildlife in Alaska and the importance of the salmon. Klaver writes; Once they enter fresh water, chum salmon stop feeding and morph into an aggressive creature intent only on mating. After spawning, they die and their bodies become a source of nutrients for everything in the forest and sea. Very special thanks to Lynn Schooler, who without I could not have made this short. Special thanks to Richard Nelson, Hank Lentfer, Riley Woodford and Henk Meeuwsen for providing additional sounds.
To Lynn & Michio, whose stories and adventures inspired me to come to Alaska.
