In The Field

 

In The Kitchen

 

FISHERMAN
Dave Chartier fishes by hand for Salmon in the waters off of Soldovia, Alaska

"As fishermen we think about the chefs in the restaurants and it makes us proud that we offer such a great product..."

 



SEASONALITY
A salmon only spawns once and then dies. Salmon return to the exact spot of their birth to spawn. Some scientists think they find their way by scent.


There are five species of wild salmon in Alaska: King, Coho, Chinook, Sockeye, and Pink.

 

SUSTAINABILITY& LOCAL FLAVOR
Alaska is home to the only 100% sustainable fishery in the world. There are no farmed, factory fish here.

SCIENTIFIC SOUP
The scientific name for a salmon is
Onchoryncus.

Scientists count fish in the rivers of Alaska to determine daily catch limits. This helps ensure that fish stocks are not depleted.

"I guess that I have my cake and am eating it too - I get to spend the day out here on the water, doing what I love to do."

"There is a big difference between farmed salmon and wild Alaska salmon, the key is that it's wild, it's out there surviving on its own, it has to fend for itself. That gives it a better flavor."
