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 World's Finest Salmon
From the first bite, you can taste the difference in the wild salmon harvested from Alaska’s renowned 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 to spawn in their birthplace.
The Artisan Craft of Fishing
We are preserving the rich, natural legacy of the Copper River. That’s why every fish we pick from the net is treated with the utmost respect and care. Copper River salmon are caught by a small fleet of independent fishermen, on one and two-man boats. This craft has been handed down for generations along with passion, knowledge and perseverance.
A Community Committed to Conservation
The fishing families of south-central Alaska are independent, small business owners dedicated to longterm sustainability of wild salmon stocks, the environment and our way of life. Our passion not only preserves our livelihood but also ensures an abundance of future generations of wild salmon. We are more than fishermen, we are conservationists.
Alaska's Copper River: Crown Jewel of the Copper River
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.
