The World's Finest Salmon

From the first bite, you can taste the difference in the wild salmon harvested from Alaska's renown Copper River. Silken texture, deep red color, and incredible flavor are born from an epic ritual: every year from May through September, King, Sockeye and Coho return to the Copper River to make the arduous 300 mile journey up the turbulent, glacial fed waters to spawn in their birthplace. This is no easy task and they need to pack on abundant energy reserves to fuel their journey - resulting in salmon rich in heart healthy and delicious fats high in omega-3 fatty acids. This perfect combination of diet and DNA yield a superior color, texture, and taste - not to mention increased health benefits. Copper River wild Alaska King, Sockeye and Coho salmon are truly unique and superior fish you can serve and eat with pride.

Born free. Caught Wild. Naturally delicious.

Alaska's Copper River,

the Crown Jewel of the Pristine Gulf of Alaska

Rising out of the Copper Glacier in the untouched wilderness of southcentral Alaska, the Copper River Delta is one of the last intact watersheds in the world - turbid glacial water flowing through the majestic Wrangell and Chugach Mountains to the central coast where it empties into the Gulf of Alaska. This is where our fishery is located, and where we sustainably harvest the world's finest salmon.
