Salmon fishing with large loop nets by Indians at Celilo Falls, Oregon. Tribal tradition determines the spot from which each Indian fishes, and the U.S.F.&W.S. seeks to guarantee that no matter where they fish, there will be salmon aplenty. (Picture and caption circa 1950).

A fine haul - At Astoria, Oregon, these men hauling in a beach seine heavy with Columbia River salmon. The Fish and Wildlife Service keeps a careful check on salmon, for they mean vital food to the Nation in wartime. (Caption accompanied picture- apparently during WWI.)

Alaska salmon roundup - Purse seining is an important method of taking salmon in the deep, swift waters of Alaska. Salmon moving near the surface are surrounded with a wall of netting, which is supported by corks or floats. Lines are then drawn in the lower surface of the net to "purse" it into a baglike shape. The fish are then brailed out of the net.
