HOMER, Alaska (KTUU) - The Salmon Sisters have made a name for themselves in the “halibut fishing capital of the world.”
The sisters — Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton — grew up on commercial fishing vessels, started a business in their dorm, and opened a CONEX box gift shop, which grew into a real gift shop.
Now, they operate out of a former commercial fishing processing facility at the end of the Homer Spit where they support a variety of local businesses and practice seafood reclamation, among a variety of endeavors in their growing and inspirational empire — oh, and Joe Cadotte and photojournalist Kim Daehnke got to interview them.
