Look carefully and you’ll see the fish going up for processing into Taku Smokeries right on the dock. Signs nearby and inside the building explain more of the process. You might even see workers in action.

I’m honored to have a guest post at Travels with Diane
A humpback whale on a whale-watching tour out of Juneau.
Appropriate Alaskan decor at the pool on the MS Amsterdam.
Free touch tank full of Alaskan creatures, like this sea star, anemones, etc. Fisheries Research Center, across the big bridge from downtown.
A whale seen right from the beach at Icy Strait Point. It blew a ring of bubbles and then lunged up, mouth open, presumably scooping up a load of food.
Short boardwalk loop at Mendenhall Glacier, just outside of Juneau. Good place to watch salmon when they’re running. The bears think it’s a good place too, so you might get to see one up close.
