Food Gathered in the Spring

During the springtime the Tlingits gathered mostly seafoods. To the left is a picture of a eulachon. A eulachon was caught and rendered into oil, and then turned into grease which was a highly desired condiment eaten with almost anything. It was also used to for seasoning and preserving much of the foods they caught. In the spring you can also catch king crab, seaweed, abalone, halibut, herring, and octopus. The animals that were caught were bears and porcupines, as they needed them. Those are the foods that can be gathered during the spring.
