What a privilege to go out on the boat with Sitka Tribe resource managers Jeff Feldpausch and Jessica Gill to watch them pull a set of hemlock branches covered in herring roe. Not being an Alaska resident, I couldn’t help with the harvest, but I was able to help with the processing along with other STA employees and also some ADF&G subsistence personnel. We processed about 900 lbs. of roe with about 7 people working 4 hours. It was impressive. And herring eggs right off the rock are so delicious! What a special food…I’ve had herring eggs before but nothing else compares.
