The Exxon Valdez spill in affected many lives. In Red Light to Starboard we get a look at Bobby Day. Bobby was a fisherman who loved Alaska and fishing. When the spill took place Bobby was on top of his game. We also get a look into how Exxon employees had mad a few mistakes that ended up adversely affecting the ecosystem of Prince William Sound. Between the massive amounts of oil, and the oil cleaning process the Sound changed. Many fishermen were losing out on what used to be a plentiful abundance of Salmon and Herring.
