Onocorhynchus Nerka, otherwise known as Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is an anadromous fish, living in the ocean but eventually entering fresh water to spawn. Sockeye Salmon spend one to four years in in fresh water and one to three years in the ocean. Every summer, our commercial fishing operation seasonally harvest or catch the salmon during the Summer months from the icy, pure waters off Alaska. On average, these salmon grow to 24 inches, sometimes as long as 31 inches and can weigh anywhere from 4 to 15 pounds. The Sockeye’s fillets have a beautiful silky texture and a distinguished fresh flavor that is derived from the cold and natural habitat they the live in. The deep, ruby-red color comes from the krill that they feed on, hence having another name as being Red Salmon. Certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, Sockeye Salmon are the second most abundant species of Salmon, and arguably the most delicious.
