Each year, the Alaska sockeye salmon season starts off with a lot of hoopla about Copper River. Prices were again ridiculously high this year. Generally the second opening is in Resurrection Bay, one of the fjords on the Kenai Peninsula. Named to commemorate the survival of Alexander Baranov during a brutal storm that broke on Easter Sunday, it is also where some of the season's first fresh sockeye are pulled from the water to make it to the lower 48 – at considerably more reasonable prices.
