Alaska Wild Salmon
Alaska wild salmon is prized for its unparalleled flavor, which is a result of salmon living wild in Alaska’s icy, pure waters and the abundance of natural food they live on.
The flavor of Alaska wild salmon depends upon the fat content of the fish and the environment in which it matured. The fat content of salmon depends on the genetic make-up of each species, and on its spawning cycle. The longer and more vigorous the freshwater trip, the more fat the fish will carry as it leaves the ocean.
All Alaska Salmon is wild. The farming of fin fish is illegal in the State of Alaska to ensure the sustainability and health of Alaska’s wild salmon population.
There are five species of Alaska salmon:
- King (Chinook)
- Sockeye (Red)
- Coho (Silver)
- Pink (Humpback)
- Keta (Chum)
