Caven Pfeiffer, of Sitka, waves signs at the corner of Egan Drive and 10th Street on Monday, April 2, 2018, to bring attention to him selling halibut off his fishing boat, Sword, at the Don Statter Memorial Boat Harbor in Auke Bay. He is selling his fish for $9.50 per pound. Pfeiffer said, “ We have a — poor price this year. We got a 15 percent cut in our quota and then our price is about 30 percent less. That’s why I am working so hard.” One side of his sign reads “We don’t do Stormy Daniels.” The other side reads “We do Stormy Seas.” Pfeiffer said he just wanted to have a little fun while selling his fish.
