Aleutian Islands: King Cove

Next settlement was equally desolate King Cove, although the population here I nearly a 1000 people once one of the larger fish plants in Alaska is located here – processing vast amount of the abundant Alaskan crabs (which is actually the Kamchatka Crab but calling it Alaskan probably pleases Trump), cod, salmon, halibut, sablefish (black cod), and pollock. The harbor here is packed off boats while the Tom itself was a bit from it to be able to get there during the one hour ferry stop. But one hour was enough to smoke the cold, windy, wet, and full of mosquitoes environment.
