National Geographic: Mine Is Looming Threat to Bristol Bay

Posted on December 04 2010

A remarkable photograph by Michael Melford accompanies Edwin Dobb’s coverage of Bristol Bay and the controversial mine that may contaminate its waters.
“Of all the millions of sockeye that return each year and survive the gantlet of commercial and subsistence fishing in the bay, at least a million will enter the Wood River, a tributary of the Nushagak. That’s a single-river population at least ten times greater than the recent annual returns for the entire Columbia River system.” (Thanks to Robert Tomes for this link.)
