WILD

Alaska seafood comes from the wild, pristine waters of Alaska and is prized as the highest quality in the world. Alaska seafood is additive-free. The flavour and colour characteristics of wild Alaska seafood come from the fish feeding on a natural diet of marine organisms, the texture comes from the annual migrations in the cold North Pacific.

Fish from Alaska swim wild. This freedom to swim means the fish have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and lower levels of fat than many other fish. Wild Alaska salmon is a quality product that has some of the best credentials in the world – product from a clean, wild environment that is respected by the people who fish it.

NATURAL

As Alaskan fish feed on a natural diet of marine organisms, Alaska seafood is 100% natural.

Living in the cleanest waters in the world, wild Alaska salmon is a firm, fit and vibrant fish. Rich in nutrients and retaining all of the goodness from when it is frozen to when it ends up on the dinner plate. It is frozen within hours of catch to capture its inherent quality.

SUSTAINABLE

Alaska is 100% committed to responsible fishing and a world leader in sustainability. Ticking the sustainable box cannot be easier when buying wild Alaska seafood. Fisheries are independently certified as responsibly managed. Each fishery is assessed annually and is given a total catch quota, once that quota is reached, the fishery is closed to preserve stocks for future generations. Entire communities are intimately involved with the harvesting of Alaska’s seafood.

Alaskans have always understood that the fishing industry cannot exist without a commitment to enforce sustainability practices. In Alaska “sustainable” applies to the fish, the local communities, the fisherman and the economic return.
