Copper River Sockeye Salmon is world-famous and one of our absolute favorite fish. You will be amazed when you see the spectacular bright red color! Because the Copper River is so swift, these fish must store extra fat and oils to survive the long trip. This high fat and oil content is why Copper River Salmon are recognized as some of the world's best-eating salmon. This high-fat content delivers heart-healthy Omega 3’s and gives the Sockeye a rich, bold flavor. Sockeye also has a firm texture that lends itself well to all kinds of grilling, frying, and baking recipes. We like to keep our Sockeye recipes simple since Sockeye has such an amazing bold flavor naturally.
Wild Alaskan Copper River Sockeye are special. They are the first salmon species to run in the spring and often claimed to be the finest salmon in the world. Our Copper River sockeye salmon are wild and sustainably caught out of Cordova, AK using small gillnet boats.
All our fish are wild and sustainably caught in Alaska by ourselves and other quality fishermen we know and trust.
We own a small custom processing facility (60 North Seafoods) in Cordova, Alaska. Located right at the source, we immediately clean, cut, portion, wrap in parchment, and flash freeze for premium quality.

We ship directly to your door in insulated boxes. All orders are shipped on Mondays. Orders placed by noon (PST) on Monday will be shipped the same day, orders placed later will be shipped the following Monday. We will send an email with the tracking number on the day it ships so you know when to expect it.
We use sustainable green cell foam to insulate our frozen boxes instead of styrofoam. A combination of pellet dry ice and booster packs (pcm gel packs that hold below freezing) are used to keep fish frozen during transit.
Smoked salmon jars are shipped separately from frozen products because the glass could break due to the very low freezing temperature of dry ice.
