Herring Reduction Plant at Killisnoo
(Vincent Soboleff collection, PCA 1-339, Alaska State Library--click to enlarge)

The whale/herring reduction plant at Killisnoo played a key role in the cultural and resource dynamics of Southeast Alaska. The first, and for many years the only, herring reduction plant in Alaska, its fishery records provide some consistent long-term clues to the ebb and flow of herring populations in the region.
