Know where your salmon comes from

It's true that there are plenty of fish in the sea, but salmon truly is king when it comes to nutrition.

Salmon is the common name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae, but the type most commonly found in the cold wilderness of Alaskan waters is the sockeye salmon.

Also known as red or blueback salmon, among the seven Pacific salmon species, their luscious, deep-orange meat color is valued above all others.

Sockeye salmon is well known as one of nature's top superfoods due to the abundance of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, as well as tons of other vitamins and minerals which can be found in just 4 ounces of a wild-caught salmon fillet.

Know your salmon

Wild-caught vs farm-raised

Sockeye are born in freshwater where they stay for one to two years before swimming out to the open sea. Over the course of the next two to three years living in the North Pacific and the Bering Sea they grow rapidly, reaching spawning maturity just before the end of their lifecycle. Wild-caught salmon is harvested migrating back to the river and lake system where they were spawned.

Unfortunately, almost the entire supply of salmon on the market today are industrial farm-raised and cared for in a pen. They are fed a planned diet of fish meal and medicated, if needed, in an effort to assure survival before the final harvest.

The fish in Salmon Box are cared for and raised naturally the way Mother Nature intended.

All of the salmon in Salmon Box is caught using the fixed-net method during the high tide, when the fish naturally migrate to Alaskan shores. Bristol Bay is one of the most preserved fishing locations in the world, thanks to the conservative management by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
