A warm winter that left little snow in the mountains -- followed by warm spring and summer weather -- took a toll on salmon and Dolly Varden returning to spawn upstream from Jakolof Bay near Seldovia.
Thousands of fish piled up dead in an area where the stream bed was dry.
Jakolaf Creek is a rich vein of food for the Alaskan community.
Every year they fish here for pink salmon but this year all the pink salmon are dead.
This year there is no snow, the fish are being brought up the creek on the tide but as the tide pulls out the fish are left stranded on a waterless creek, they are literally dying on the spot and more important they are not reaching their spawning grounds.
Mike Brubaker, director of community environment and safety for ANTHC and director of the consortium's Center for Climate and Health, traveled to the site on Sept. 6 with his son Ryan, where they saw the situation up close.
They took photographs and made a video a photographic record of the conditions.
