About the Episode

Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska is home to the last great wild sockeye salmon fishery, and to mineral deposits estimated to be worth nearly $500 billion. FRONTLINE probes the fault lines of a growing battle between those who depend on this extraordinary fishery for a living, the mining companies pushing to extract the minerals and the political framework that will ultimately decide the outcome.
