Fish Basics

Naturally Wild Alaska
Alaska is one of the most bountiful fishing regions in the world, supplying 50% of the seafood produced in the United States. Alaskan commercial fishermen and women are individual small business owners, who brave the rough Alaskan seas and risk their lives daily to support their families and to provide you with wild natural seafood.

LaDonna and fishThere are no fish farms in Alaska. Alaskan law prohibits all types of fish farming. Alaska salmon run wild and free in the unspoiled icy, clear waters of the North Pacific. Alaska salmon feed on the sea’s natural marine life, unlike Atlantic farmed raised salmon, which are fed a diet of industrially manufactured feed. This is why there is a compelling taste difference between wild Alaska salmon and Atlantic farmed raised salmon.

Alaska yields nearly six billion pounds of seafood per year and is the only state in the nation whose constitution explicitly mandates that fisheries are maintained on the sustainable yield principle.

Salmon seasons are regulated on run strength and based on daily data collected from the fishing grounds. This method accurately measures run strength to ensure future stock. Limits are precisely calculated to keep Alaska waters stocked with a continuous ever-replenishing supply of seafood, just as nature intended. Alaska seafood is additive-free and provides healthful , natural nutrients.

By asking for wild Alaska seafood you help support the many fishing families throughout Alaska. By eating wild Pacific salmon instead of farm-raised Atlantic salmon is one of the most effective ways to ensure plentiful wild salmon runs well into the future. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Just remember: Friends don’t let friends eat farmed salmon
