Commercial Fishing Video Of The Day | Kodiak Blessing Of The Fleet

It’s that time of year again! The salmon will be flowing over the decks soon. Most harbors like to send the fishermen out what good tidings and blessings. I like the drive by thing in Kodiak. I’ve never seen their blessing ceremony before.

Via YouTube: The traditional blessing of the fleet is open to all vessels. A blessing service is sung followed by an Orthodox priest sprinkling each passing vessel with Holy Water.
