You can’t beat a keta salmon…

If you haven’t tried our keta salmon portions yet, get prepared for a very pleasant surprise. Here is a glowing review from one of our customers:

“The first time we got the keta salmon portions I cooked them up with a really simple recipe. I baked them up plain at 400° F for 9 minutes. When done I sprinkled some seasoning salt on top and served with a pasta dish. Cooked, they look almost like a white fish like halibut–just a very gentle pink coloring. The taste was a nice blend of mild, moist and delicate. Like the combination of a halibut and salmon. The keta salmon is also like halibut in flavor—not quite as meaty, but really delicate with subtle undertones of pleasant salmon. These keta salmon portions would pair well with other dishes in which you would use halibut or other white fish. We decided to go ahead and order 20 pounds to fill our freezer and feed the family. With the bulk order, it’s a great price for wild salmon that tastes great and is nourishing!”

The vast majority of keta salmon are net-caught as they approach streams and near the end of their lives. In contrast, our Alaska Gold wild keta salmon are caught on hook and line and, by definition, these salmon are actively feeding, and therefore at the peak of their quality. (Keta rhymes with “you can’t beat a…” as in “you can’t beat a keta.) Being line-caught, they are also well taken care of on the boat by the fishermen rather than sitting for long periods of time in big nets. The difference in being line-caught cannot be underestimated. Line-caught wild keta salmon is exceedingly rare, making up less than one percent of keta salmon harvested. These are special fish!

What makes Alaska Gold Salmon special?

Line-caught king salmon.

Alaska Gold Salmon from Seafood Producers Cooperative are line-caught on the open ocean when their natural oil content and texture are at their peak.  Because Alaska Gold™ king and coho salmon are caught on hook and line, they are by definition actively feeding and at the prime of their life cycle—bright with the freshest taste, the purest color, firm skin, perfect texture, and silky flavor. Since each fish is handled one fish at a time, great care is put into cleaning the fish and freezing them as possible.

Only a small percentage—less than 5%—of Alaska salmon are caught on hook and line, but what line-caught Alaska Gold Salmon lack in quantity, they more than make up for in quality.

No fish is handled with more care from the time it leaves the water until it is delivered to a customer than a line-caught Alaska Gold Salmon from Seafood Producers Cooperative. As a fishermen’s cooperative owned and operated by fishermen, we have a relentless commitment to quality.

Our meticulous handling methods make for the best tasting fish available. Alaska Gold Salmon are cleaned and stowed in a matter of minutes after being caught,  locking in their fresh from the ocean flavors. Being quickly cleaned as soon as they make it to the deck of the boat stops the process that creates off flavors common in fish that aren’t handled with the same level of care. Line-caught Alaska Gold Salmon are handled One Fish At A Time. This difference in the way the fish are handled means that a Alaska Gold Salmon caught on hook and line makes for a premium-quality product with the freshest taste.

Our relentless commitment to quality begins with the careful handling of our catch the moment it comes on board and continues all the way to when our customers receive our products and beyond, as so many of our customers have been loyal to us for years for that extra personal touch that we provide to everyone who orders.
