Born Free. Caught Wild. Naturally Delicious.

The Copper River is the birthplace of three wild Alaskan salmon species. Every year from May through September, King, Sockeye and Coho return to the Copper River to make the arduous 300-mile migration up the turbulent waters in order to spawn. Because the Copper River is so long and steep, gaining an average elevation of 12 feet per mile, these fish must pack on sufficient fat reserves to fuel their epic journey—resulting in salmon that is rich in heart- healthy omega-3 fatty acids and flavorful oils. 

The distinct regional DNA and lifecycle of these fish yields the world’s finest salmon.
