Alaskan Tales: Fish Hearts

Ouch! Something small and kind of spongy, but also very dense, had hit me in the chest. I looked down to see what it was, but could not distinguish anything in the vat of fish guts and icy water in front of me.  Before I could resume work on the slime line, I was hit […]
