A western Alaska fish buyer is trying to build a market for an ancient creature that might otherwise swim unnoticed at the bottom of icy rivers this time of year. The lamprey is a long, boneless fish that looks like an eel. Millions of them enter the Yukon and other major rivers this time of year to spawn.
