The 2015 Great Alaskan Buoy Tender Fish Cook-off

Competition has been running rampant in Juneau as Coast Guard buoy tender crewmembers across Alaska and the Pacific Northwest have been participating throughout the week in the 2015 Buoy Tender Roundup. While activities have ranged from chain pull, line throw, tug-of-war and heat-and-beat, there’s one challenge that has a lot of spectators clamoring to attend; the fish cook-off contest.
