My name is James King.I have lived in Alaska for over 15 years. I arrived here in my 20's to work as a wildlife biologist with various private firms and government agencies, researching wildlife populations in the high Arctic and marine species throughout the state. I have a passion for wildlife and their conservation, especially a love of the oceans and the life in them. Knowing where food and energy come from and harvesting it wisely are meaningful aspects of my life. Trolling for salmon is a new venture that allows me to be out on the beautiful waters of northern Southeast Alaska, and to participate in a unique fishery made up of independent, small-boat owners who must know salmon and their habitats intimately to ensure their catch. I operate the F/V ("fishing vessel") Zaba. "Zaba" is polish for frog, a good luck totem to fishermen. I cherish the opportunity to share ym fish and the experience of knowing their habitats and ways with customers.
