The F/V St. Paul

The St. Paul was a Puget Sound boat. It would fish near the Hoonah boats but not right in the main action.
Traditional Knowledge: 

A roller pulls the net in as the crew stacks it along with a crewmember to pile the cork.


In this image, the crew of the FV St. Paul, possibly a Puget Sound boat, hauls its net by hand. Seine fishing was first introduced to the Inian Islands in the 1920s by boats hailing from Puget Sound. A group of Slavonian fishermen who brought seine fishing from the Adriatic Sea to Puget Sound were the first to share the technique with Huna natives, who then adaped it to their environment and came to master the fishery in the Inian Islands. All of the techniques of the fishery are evident in this image.
