FRONTLINE travels to Alaska to probe the fault lines of a growing battle between those who depend on the Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska, home to the last great wild Sockeye salmon fishery in the world for a living, the mining companies who are pushing to extract enormous amounts of mineral deposits, estimated to be worth some $300 billion, and the political framework that will ultimately decide the outcome.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Alaska Gold: A War of Resources: The Fish or the Mine? DVD:

Man's greed should not be the forerunner to earth's gifts. Yes, fish are a resource too and we are "mining" them also, but with far less detriment to the environment. In fact, they can re-produce themselves; the minerals cannot do so in the same geographical area.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Alaska Gold: A War of Resources: The Fish or the Mine? DVD:

This program brought tears to my eyes. How can you put a price on beauty created so perfectly and sustained by the sheer fact that native americans have kept it pristine and honorable and teeming with life? PIT (literally) that against a mine that will be so deep and so huge it will require at least two holding tanks of sludge residue which becomes sulfuric acid and must be maintained for -- ETERNITY -- lest it pollute the waters surrounding the mine. Waters that give birth to the largest wild salmon run in the world and that provides life for bears, birds, and humans. This mine will tap out of minerals in 100 years, leave the largest man-made gash in our environment and acid which must be monitored until the end of time. Viewers can do the math!
