Usually silver in color with a green, blue, or brown back, the Sheefish is found in lakes, rivers, and brackish estuaries throughout Alaska. Their meat is white, flaky, and somewhat oily and prized by many. They can weigh up to 50 lbs although the average is much smaller than that. Alaska Natives in some regions rely heavily on the Sheefish in addition to other protiens they procure.
