Alaska gold

Alaska Gold is a documentary that PBS Frontline aired in July.

The programme revolves around the life and riches in Bristol Bay, southwest Alaska. This area is home to the last great wild salmon fishery, and to mineral deposits estimated to be worth nearly $500 billion.

The documentary reveals the battle between those who depend on this fishery for a living, the mining companies trying to extract the minerals and the political framework that will ultimately settle the issue.
