Suggested interview topics


From net to table no-one knows more about catching, cooking and eating salmon than LaDonna. She’s been a commercial fisherwoman in Alaska for more than two decades. Being chief cook and deckhand on the LaDonna Rose has uniquely positioned her to discuss a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Why friends don’t let friends eat farmed salmon
  • What to look for when choosing fish
  • King vs. coho vs. sockeye and others. Which should I choose? How do I know which to bake, broil or BBQ?
  • Inventive cooking in tight spaces
  • Cooking quick and easy meals without sacrificing flavor or healthy eating

For boating or fishing publications

  • Galley tips and galley essentials
  • Cooking in tight spaces
  • Provisioning for cruising
  • Cooking while underway
  • Creative cooking in the galley
