There’s not one thing that makes Wild Alaskan Copper River King, Sockeye, and Coho Salmon different—there are many. Deep color. Silken texture. Rich flavor. The Copper River difference is in the extra fat these fish store to sustain their arduous, upriver journey to the stream where they were born.
Honoring that turbulent journey, our artisan fishermen treat each fish with the utmost care, employing traditional, sustainable practices. With hand processing and minimal handling, we deliver our salmon to you as fresh as if you’d just caught it yourself.
We are committed to conserving the rich Copper River heritage for many generations to come, and to providing you with only the best quality and flavor—a truly superior salmon you can serve and eat with pride.
The Copper River is the birthplace of three wild Alaskan salmon species. These salmon live as adults in the Gulf of Alaska and the Pacific ocean eating small crustaceans and zooplankton.
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 (gains 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 fish’s distinct regional DNA and lifecycle yield the world’s finest salmon.
