Fish processing plant. Fish factory worker packing trays of salmon and moving them to a conveyor belt. This is the Yasny fish factory on Iturup Island, operated by the Gidrostroi company. Iturup lies off the large island of Sakhalin in Russia's Far East. Sakhalin's dense river network supports a large number of migrating salmon arriving from the Pacific Ocean to breed, and the salmon are caught, processed and sold as food. Photographed in 2005.
