Every summer the excitement in Alaska brews as thousands of commercial and sport fishermen travel from all over the world chasing the legendary wild salmon. Native to Alaska, every year millions of salmon return from the ocean to spawn in the freshwater streams where they were born. How they navigate back to there home after years of ocean life is still not fully understood by biologists, but is a tradition well respected by fishermen both commercial and sport.
Copper River Seafood harvests only wild salmon. Chinook, Sockeye, Coho and Chum salmon are all caught by trolling, gillnetting, and purse seining near the mouths of the Alaskan river systems. Salmon from the Copper River are renowned worldwide for their meat’s elegant red hue, health benefits and rich savory flavor. From the coastal regions of the largest state comes one of the greatest fishing industries in the world.
In addition to salmon, Alaska hosts a large variety of other sport and commercial fish. From the depths of the ocean also comes the infamous large pacific halibut which can grow to be as large as 400 pounds! Though most caught by commercial fishermen are between 20 and 200 pounds. Alongside salmon, cod and crab are caught in the waters of Bristol Bay Alaska. The local lakes and streams offer an abundance of sport fishing for trout, char, grayling, and other species not commonly found in stores.
