Smoking Salmon In Rural Alaska For Use In The Winter: Bearfoot Travel Guides Take A Look

Fish-drying display outdoors in Nenana.

"Dog Salmon" On Display at Nenana, Alaska 

This is a fish drying display in Nenana, Alaska. Salmon is a major source of protein along Alaskan rivers. Dried fish is a staple of Alaskan culture, and Athabascan Indians were adept at turning fish into nutritious, portable food, easily carried around in bundles. Please note -- this display is at least a decade old, and has weathered storms, dust and bad weather. Actual dried and smoked salmon are red and delicious; these fish are so old, and dust-covered, that they have not been edible for many years. They're just a display.
