HALIBUT HEADS (short)
It’s early spring at Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal, and Jan Standaert and his fellow “Halibut Heads” prepare to sail their beloved 1920’s schooners North to the Aleutian chain, carrying on a century-old tradition of long-lining. In a time when many fisheries – notably salmon – are struggling under depleted runs, why are the Halibut Heads so happy?
