What’s on sale: wild Alaska Sockeye slamon

Price: $11.99/lb.

What to know about this salmon:

  • It’s wild salmon season! This Sockeye is fresh, never frozen, and rich in Omega-3s.
  • Sockeye Reds draw people in with their bright red color and extra firm texture. Premium sockeye – that with the highest oil content – comes from either very long river systems or from glacial, very cold river systems. 
  • Our wild Alaska salmon comes from fisheries rated green or yellow 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.
  • Our Port Buyers are based in Alaska throughout the salmon season. They works personally with fishermen to bring the highest-quality salmon to our fresh cases.
