NY Times on Bristol Bay

Maybe building the largest open-pit mine in the world on top of the largest wild salmon fishery in the world isn’t a good idea.

On Bristol Bay

I’ve been away from the internet for some weeks now and during part of that time I was working, as I’ve done before, on a commercial fishing boat in Bristol Bay, Alaska. The journal n+1 has published an essay I wrote about Bristol Bay and the threat it faces from Pebble Mine, a massive open pit mining operation that will be, if it’s built, one of the largest on the continent. This mine will almost certainly destroy the salmon runs of Bristol Bay, which are by far the largest in the world. Please follow the link and read, if you’re interested, and pass it along if you like.
