- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Juneau soup kitchen and shelter has received nine tons of individually wrapped, frozen salmon steaks. The donation, which has an estimated retail value of more than $100,000, was made by the Seattle-based nonprofit SeaShare. KTOO reports that the salmon donated to The Glory Hole in Juneau is chum bycatch from the pollock trawl fishery in the Bering Sea. SeaShare also has donated fish to other Alaska communities. In Juneau, Glory Hole clients will help distribute the salmon to the Southeast Alaska Food Bank and other organizations. The Glory Hole itself plans to keep 3,000 pounds of salmon.
