For generations, immigrants from Seattle have migrated north to seek their fortunes in the Alaskan fishing industry.
Filipinos were among the first, and remain the largest group, but recently East Africans have joined the throngs.
In this series we look at what life is like for this new wave of seafood processing workers.
"Ballard North" was produced with the support of the Program Venture Fund, in partnership with The Seattle Globalist. It was reported by Jessica Partnow, with additional reporting by Alex Stonehill, Sarah Stuteville, and Feliks Banel. The series was edited by Carol Smith.
