Fog rises over Petersburg fishing fleet

Petersburg is known as Alaska's "Little Norway" due to the traditional Norwegian celebrations celebrated there each year. The town was named for Peter Buschmann who established a sawmill there in 1899 and a salmon cannery in 1900. It also boasts the largest home-based halibut fleet in Alaska.
