Learn how coho salmon fights the winter blues

With the colder, darker season coming upon us, we have some important news on Wild Salmon and vitamin D content:

Just one of our 6-ounce wild coho salmon portions has over 90% of the recommended daily value of vitamin D.

A wise fisherman once said, “You don’t grow old eating Alaska Gold.” While we don’t claim to have the fountain of youth, we believe that the vitamin D and other nutrients in wild coho salmon are what keep those of us up north strong through the winter.  The nutrients in seafood are many and it’s no wonder our fishermen are so full of life, even after working 16-hour days.

A lot of Alaskans say that the indigenous peoples of southeast Alaska, like the Tlingits, were able to not only survive but thrive during the dark and dreary days in the region by eating loads of fish throughout the winter. Numerous varieties of seafood, and in particular salmon, were essential to the early Americans’ diets. Food is a central part of the Tlingit culture—the rich land and waters of southeast Alaska the provider. Because of the rich bounties from the land and sea, the Tlingits were one of the richest societies in human history—both rich in nourishing food and rich in arts and culture, because the nourishing food they were able to hunt, fish and gather gave them time to develop rich storytelling and artistic traditions.

Don’t take it from us—we’re just fishermen. In the blog post here, we offer some links to studies and articles on the health benefits of vitamin D.
