How to get an Alaskan Fishing Job?

I am 16, living in Connecticut

I want to get a job as an Alaskan fisherman working on some type of salmon boat or something.

Does anybody know how to get one?

Do I need experience?

Can I just show up and ask for a job?

Also, does anyone know if they will hire me.

I'm only 16 but I've lived my who life on boats:)

Finally, what is the pay like, will I make a prophet or will I spend most of my money on air fare?

Thank you

And best wishes to you all

    Ummm how is a 16 year old going to make it to the other side of the world and get a job?

    Source(s): Ya you can take a look at the welfare website if your planning on that. I really wonder why everyone wants to be a fisherman in Alaska when theres better prophet in your state.

    There are plenty of people already living in Alaska with out any more people going up there to join the long queues of unemployed fishing folk!
