*Damn Near Perfect Portions

  • Each selection ranges from 2.50 lb to 3.00 lb and contains 5-6 individually vacuum sealed, hand cut portions that consistently average 8 oz each.
  • We don't know we're making "*Damn Near Perfect" cuts until after final inspection by Sarah. Every fish is handled with the same care at harvest and during production as our Premium Portions. But none the less, at times some portions are held to the side.

  • We strive for perfection and when we don't quite get there, we're honest about it. Most often customers tell us our seconds far surpass what they have received as "premium" from large scale seafood suppliers. 

Collars

  • Each selection ranges from 1.50 lb to 2.25 lb and contains 4 or 6 vacuum sealed bags the each contain 1 collars, split in half for ease of preparation. Average per collar weight varies.

​Your Copper River King at five months old still tastes fantastic and I am pacing myself so that I have the last of your Salmon approximately a week before I receive your 2022 shipment in May.

As a heads up please do not sell out your 2022 Copper River King Salmon until I have had a chance to place my order.

Again, thanks for going the extra mile in producing the best Copper River King Salmon that I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Your hard work and ensuing results are not lost on me.

Where do we get the Copper River Salmon we sell? Simple, we catch it on our independently owned fishing boat in the wilds of remote Alaska. On occasion we have family and friends pitch in when our catch is low- but only after they are trained in our advanced care of handling practices. To us every touch matters and all our fish must be handled with care from the moment they leave the ocean.
 
Our Copper River region's unique watershed yields some of the tastiest and purest Salmon in the world. World renowned as the most delicious Wild Salmon on the planet we are proud to be your source for the highest quality best tasting Copper River Salmon available on the planet.

Quality begins with the fisherman and no other company can come close to the traceability we offer, literally from the ocean to your plate.

Nature has prepared our robust Wild Alaska Copper River King Salmon with immense fat reserves brimming with heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids and luscious oils. They need strength, vigor, and fat for an arduous journey up the turbulent Copper River. A wild intact river system is blissfully devoid of cities and industry. Just pure glaciers and snow-capped mountains surrounded by open acres of Wild nature at its untamed best. CR Salmon return to the habitat they originated from years prior.

Our Copper River Salmon are hand-harvested and always handled with great care and respect. Our fishery is sustainably managed in perpetuity for future generations of humans, bears, and all the other species that depend on them.


Contains Pin Bones for quality.
In the commodity seafood industry, standard practice is to allow fresh caught salmon to "relax" for 3 or more days, so that pin bones can be removed without damaging the delicate meat- ours is frozen and packaged long before then. We prefer providing an exceptional quality with minimal handling and maximum freshness. We lock in our fresh caught flavor and nutrients with cutting edge flash freeze techniques. 

 

Copper River Sockeye Salmon
Portions
  • Contains individually vacuum sealed hand-cut portions that consistently average 6 oz each. Our artisanal handcrafted food product has a slight over/under weight variance.
  • Unlike industrialized large scale commodity seafood sales we proudly offer only all premium cuts with no tiny tail tip pieces or odds and ends trimmings included to make up weight. We leave the prized belly pieces intact on our cuts.
REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Thanks, it was out of this world! I'd had some  Copper River Sockeye from Wh0le F00ds earlier in May and it just doesn't come close at all. Really want to thank you for bringing such phenomenal, wonderful fish to our table. It has really helped my family to start to eat well. Am going to try my hand at grilling some at a BBQ later this summer when I place my next order. I will let you know!”
Sable Y. -California

We are only allotted to catch a small carefully regulated percentage of the total annual migration of Wild Salmon returning to the Copper River Watershed. This ensures fish and ocean health in perpetuity. 

Small-batched quality guaranteed. Cut and packed with a careful hand. We leave the prized belly section on our fillets. No tail tips. All premium cuts. Fresh and Frozen are handled with old world care yet utilize modern techniques for quality preservation. All natural, nothing added. This is the real deal!

Our fish is so delicious it’s a breeze to prepare. The lightest coating of your oil of choice (olive, avocado, walnut etc) to hold a crumble of Himalayan or sea salt and twist of freshly ground peppercorn results in an unparalleled dining experience. Exquisite on the grill, oven or stovetop.

This beautiful fish is only caught a few short weeks out of the year. The word is out and Copper River Salmon is recognized by discerning chefs and home cooks as the best and most coveted Wild Salmon there is. 

We handle all of the fish we catch with respect and consideration and we think you’ll notice the difference.

WILD ALASKA COPPER RIVER KING, COLLARS

Also known as “Kama” at your local sushi shop. 

  • 100% Traceable - Small Boat Catch

  • Copper River King Salmon is nutrient rich with an approachable flavor, and unparalleled silkines on the palate. This is the most coveted Salmon on the planet, and for good reason. There really is nothing that comes close.
  • These Collars/ Kama are taken from our Copper River King Salmon. This cut is the fattiest, most decadent section of the Salmon.
  • With a texture of King Crab, yet much richer and with a mild Salmon flavor profile.

  • Out of this world with a shoyu, miso, ginger, honey marinade; broil for a few minutes until they sizzle and pop, enjoy with your hands. 

Our most coveted Copper River Salmon, caught for just a few short weeks in early summer. Each fish yields two collars. Quantities are extremely limited. 

Copper River Coho Salmon

Your Copper River Coho was fabulous! Last year we placed a large order that sustained us through the winter. We would love to do the same again this year.​ Thank you for doing what you do! Lori P Oregon

Somewhat firmer in texture than our Sockeye and King. Absolutely perfect for Poke as the texture remains firm and is not too rich when eaten uncooked. 

Similar in color and texture to King Salmon, but with reduced fat content which makes it somewhat milder in flavor. 

Coho has a very approachable Salmon flavor profile and is a good cross-over for folks accustomed to farmed salmon but wanting to make a healthy choice.  

Just like our King or Sockeye Salmon, Coho Salmon naturally has high levels of heart-healthy Omega 3 oils. It is low in sodium and a good source of protein, niacin, vitamin B12, and selenium. 

Revered as a superb grilling Salmon, though also exceptional baked, poached, or sautéed.

Moist and delicate, yet also firm and substantial with a pleasingly subtle fresh from the sea flavor. Exhibiting an attractive flesh tone of muted reds to moderate orange; attributed to their wild & natural ocean diet. Leaner than our CR King with a less robust flavor than our CR Sockeye. Offering plenty of Omega-3 and Vitamin D. An exceedingly tasty and pure protein source. CR Coho is a favorite of many!

Our CR Coho's inherently pure flavor profile shines easily with a simple preparation of sea salt, fresh ground white pepper, and a drizzle of quality EVOO. Alternatively, this CR Salmon readily accepts rich sauces like a coconut curry- lemongrass, or chimichurri without competing. A stand-out super star when simply prepared raw as Hawaiian Style Poke (always use flash frozen- never fresh).

Contains Pin Bones for quality.*
In the commodity seafood industry, standard practice is to allow fresh caught salmon to "relax" for 3 or more days, so that pin bones can be removed without damaging the delicate meat- ours is frozen and packaged long before then. We prefer providing an exceptional quality with minimal handling and maximum freshness. We lock in our fresh caught flavor and nutrients with cutting edge flash freeze techniques.
*New in 2022, we had access to the new technology of an automated pin bone puller that did not require resting time. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this new offering of pin bone-free CR Coho.
Pacific Grey Cod
This is a true Cod fish! And unlike our Sablefish which is often referred to as Black Cod, which it is not.
Pacific Grey Cod has moist, firm fillets, a distinctive large flake, and a slightly sweet flavor. Well suited for a quick pan sauté, or gentle steam. But perhaps best known as a fish ’n’ chips favorite. Like all our seafood it is sushi/sashimi grade. Cook gently for tender results. 
      Wild AK Halibut. 6 oz avg hand cut individual portions
  • 100% Traceable - Small Boat Catch
  • Every fish comes with an origin guarantee.
  • Hefty, substantially dense, mild-flavored white fish.
  • Firm texture and dense flake.  
  • Halibut is so pleasing. Nutrient-rich. Pure, clean ocean-fresh taste and aroma. 
  • Fresh flavors of choppy seas and ocean brininess. The aroma of fast-running pure ocean currents. Hand-selected for Sarah, your personal Seafood Sommelier.
  • Skinless and Boneless (there is always the possibility of an unexpected bone in any fish. 
  • All our offerings are sushi-grade and a great choice for raw recipes. 
  • Wrapped in parchment, vacuum sealed, and flash-frozen for unparalleled quality. 

Halibut Chop
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! We’ve done the prep work for you.

Halibut is Alaska’s most popular white fish for a reason. With a dense texture and pure ocean flavor, we think this fish is a great substitute for chicken in recipes. Don’t forget to adjust the cooking time appropriately. 

Our premium Halibut portions are hand trimmed to pack nicely and present perfectly. With this process, we are left with odd small cuts. Rather than include these in your order (as the big seafood suppliers do), we have sliced and diced further and now have the perfect-sized cuts for curries and chowders or tacos and ceviche. Or roll it up as sushi with avocado and crisp radish.

Lingcod
Lingcod is a versatile white fish with a mild flavor, medium-firm texture, and a subtle richness in texture. Not as silky as Sablefish and not as dense as Halibut. It's unto itself. Much deserving of greater recognition. When cooked gently and flaked, Lingcod is very similar in flavor and mouth feel to Dungeness Crab. We adore it accompanied by a crisp green salad and bright white wine. 
Rockfish, species Yellow Eye
Often referred to as Red Snapper, which it is not.
Rockfish is a versatile white fish with an exceptionally mild flavor and slightly sweet medium-firm texture. There are 30+ varieties of Rockfish caught in Alaska’s waters. Our favorite, hands down are Yellow Eye. Fun fact, this gorgeous fish is the loveliest hue of orange/red with mesmerizing golden eyes. The name Yellow Eye lands a little flat when you consider their beauty.
Sablefish
Often referred to as Black Cod, which it is not. 
Sablefish is a versatile white fish with a mild flavor, slightly sweet with the richest and most luscious texture of any white fish. Almost impossible to overcook. Perfect for the home chef that tends to have a glass of wine and get to talking with guests while simultaneously preparing a meal. Just sayin…
