What to know about this salmon:

  • It’s the peak of wild salmon season! This Coho is fresh, never frozen, and rich in Omega-3s.
  • Coho is full-flavored, flaky, moist and tender, making it a versatile and delicious choice for the grill, summer salads or hearty salmon burgers.
  • The wild Alaska salmon Whole Foods Market selects are allowed to mature at their own pace by feeding on their natural diet in the icy cold waters of Alaska.
  • This wild Alaska Coho salmon comes from fisheries rated green by the Monterey Bay Aquarium or Blue Ocean Institute. That signals healthy populations (no overfishing) and a fishing method that’s easy on the environment.
  • We have two dedicated  port buyers  based in Alaska throughout the salmon season. They work personally with fishermen to bring the highest-quality salmon to our fresh cases.
