Whole Salmon & Salmon Caviar

17 November, 2017
Whole (H&G) Salmon! We have sockeye and coho. H&G is a seafood industry term that stands for "headed & gutted". I know, not very appetizing, but all it means is that the salmon has been cleaned and the head has been removed. These fish are an excellent option for your holiday meal. Size varies depending on the species (coho is larger than sockeye) and individual fish, we've seen sockeye as small as 4 pounds and coho as large as 14 pounds. Whole salmon are $10 per pound, please order soon if interested.

Salmon Caviar! Also known as ikura, this is keta roe cured using a custom 3% brine for milder flavor and lower salt content than most. Keeps 2 weeks in the refrigerator and 2 years in the freezer. Available in 42gram jars or 500gram containers.

We saved the whales with Black Cod!

9 November, 2017
Since the 1986 moratorium on whales by most countries, sperm whales in particular have grown in number by 4% per year in the Gulf of Alaska. The black cod fishing industry has been reporting a significant loss from whales attacking baited fishing hooks for 20 years. Black cod is the most valuable seafood in the North Pacific in economic terms and omega-3 oil content, desirable to both man and whales around the world. Most attribute the diet of baby king crab to explain why black cod holds a high value.

Farmed fish contained in ocean pens are also attacked by whales feeding. Wild salmon is safe from whales because they are hard to catch. Lucky us!
