Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon

In southwest Alaska, where the Alaskan Peninsula meets the Bering Sea, lies Bristol Bay, a pristine natural treasure and the home to one of the most bountiful salmon fishing regions on the planet.

Each year, once the maximum number of salmon that the river systems can handle make it upstream to spawn, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game open up the Bristol Bay fishing waters to the indigenous tribes that have fished the region for centuries and a small number of local, family fishing operations.

We are proud to source all our delicious, wild-caught Alaskan sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay.
