A crewman loads boxes of pollock, also known as surimi, in a brailer from the dock to a tramper, M/V Kashiwagi in Dutch Harbor, Alaska in February 1996. Trawl catcher vessels initially catch the fish in larges nets which drag along the ocean floor.  It is then brought back to port, processed in a seafood processing plant and delivered to trampers who ship the product around the world.
