Fishermen's Locker: What the Fishermen Take Home

Showing all 4 results

When fishermen come to our office, they frequently ask, “Do you have any off-cuts to sell?”

Our office staff and fishermen take home these off-cuts because they get discounts on these off-cut pieces. The fish’s quality isn’t impaired, but the fish might not meet a size spec (i.e., 8.0 ounces). And so the price is reduced. But it’s still the same wonderful fish. And if you’ve had our fish, you know that it’s good.

Fish caught by member/owners of Seafood Producers Cooperative has gained a reputation for quality. Our member/owners know that. Our fishermen’s co-op has been a beacon of high ideals in the fishing community for over 70 years.

While supplies last, we’re offering our ‘off-cuts.’ We call them our Fishermen’s Locker collection. Same great Alaska Gold fish–discounted price.

Even with our high ideals, we recognize that nobody’s perfect. We’re straight shooters and are as honest as we can be with customers.

Here’s what we’ve got in the Fishermen’s Locker Collection:

Halibut portions that range between 3 to 7 ounces instead of our (nearly) perfect 8.0-ounce halibut portions.

We’ve got king salmon portions ranging between 3-7 ounces. These king salmon portions are going to vary in color–some whites, some marbled, some reds and calicos. Of all Pacific salmon, king salmon vary the most in color. It depends on both their genetics and what they’re eating in the ocean. Certain runs and “vintages” just have different diet preferences and hence colors–there’s nothing we can do about it. They’re wild fish! And it’s in general more difficult for us to sell marbled, calicos, and whites, even though our whites (also known as ivory king salmon) are typically preferred by fishermen and Alaskans.

We also have some coho salmon portions ranging between 3 and 6 ounces and these portions are a great way to get wild salmon into the wee ones’ diets.

All of these packages are sold as is. There will probably be a disproportionate number of tail pieces in each box, but wild Alaskan seafood is wild Alaskan seafood. What we have in the fishermen’s locker is what the fishermen and office staff bring home. If it’s good enough for us, it’s good enough for you.
