Fish, Forest and Fungus

Every fall in coastal Alaska summer abundance begins to wane as the seasons shift. Nowhere will this change become more evident than in the coastal forests where the streams are full of salmon and the forest floor is covered in mushrooms; hedgehogs, porcinis and winter chanterelles. These wild treats are known to many chefs and home cooks and it is no accident that they are found together. The connection between salmon and mushrooms goes deeper than culinary delights. They are a part of a symbiotic cycle that keeps our forests and fisheries healthy.

Copper River salmon is famous for kicking off the wild Alaskan salmon season each spring. The Copper River fleet fishes a long season that begins in May and extends all the way through September. Throughout this entire time Copper River salmon can be found fresh in stores nationwide. As any seafood lover knows, there’s nothing quite like tasting wild seafood that was caught only hours before hitting your plate.
