Emmonak is a Yup’ik Eskimo commercial salmon fishing and processing town accessed by a state owned public use airport. Many of the Yu’pik, whose ancestors settled here 10,000 years ago, travel to fish camps after the salmon runs to dry fish for winter use. Moose, beluga whale, seal, waterfowl and berries are also harvested.
