Sockeye salmon are a vital food source for Alaska’s brown bears. In one study, a single Kodiak Island bear consumed more than two tons of salmon in a summer–up to 30 fish a day. Each sockeye offers about 4,000 calories that will help the bear make it through the long winter. The seagulls hang around to eat the scraps that the bears leave behind.
