People often ask what fishermen do during months when they are not actively fishing, and my response is, “Lots!” Continue reading “What Fishermen Do In the Winter”
With Diabetes now affecting Americans at epidemic levels (and growing every year), researchers are scrambling to find solutions to this problem. Everyone wants to know why this is happening and what we can do about it. Some of the answers are obvious, like eating a balanced diet and getting more exercise. Â But what does it mean, exactly, to eat a balanced diet? Well, recent studies show that eating wild salmon regularly can not only help prevent Type 2 diabetes, but may also slow the effects of diabetes in those that are already suffering from the disease.

I do solemnly swear, canned wild Alaska salmon is the best lunch food in the world. Not only is it delicious, eating wild salmon at lunch seems to make for a better day all around.

Eating canned salmon makes that goal readily achievable. Just open the can! There couldn’t be a better, easier lunch. Continue reading “Make a Better Day-Eat Canned Wild Alaska Salmon at Lunch”

Even in a literal sea of the world’s finest and freshest seafood, Alaska fishermen eat canned Alaska salmon. Remo Lotscher and Andy Zuanich of the M/V Primus take plenty of canned Alaska salmon on their longline trips in the Bering Sea. Canned Alaska salmon, both Thinkpink pink salmon and Redhead red salmon, are easy to eat and deliver the highest quality protein for optimal energy when working the long hours on a fishing boat. They eat canned Alaska straight out the can when there isn’t time for food preparation. Those are black cod that they are processing fresh on the boat.

Jim Zuanich ate at least 3.5 ounces of Redhead or Thinkpink a day for 23 days at which time he had his blood mercury levels tested. There was no detectable mercury in his bloodstream. Zuanich also said he loved canned salmon more after he was done with his experiment, reporting that salmon at lunch made for more energy and a happier outlook than with other foods. “Nothing compares for lunch,” said Zuanich, skipper of the M/V Marshal Tito.

“Faced with the prospect of a poor salmon season in 1981, I crewed with some friends of mine for the Togiak (western Bristol Bay) herring fishery. The boat, the Ms B Haven and my friends were primarily Bristol Bay salmon fishermen. They told me that during the salmon season the numerous Italian and equally numerous Croatian fishermen were always disparaging each others ethnicity on the radio. Finally, an indignant Italian came back with ‘Name me one famous Croatian, I can name famous Italians all day, there’s Sinatra.’ After a long silence someone returned ‘Marshal Tito.’ I had no choice but to name a boat after him. I’m glad I’m not Italian, I’d hate to have to fish a boat called the Sinatra.” -Jim Zuanich Continue reading “Why I Named My Boat the Marshal Tito, by Jim Zuanich”
Tuna, in our opinion, is still a good food choice given the fact it is nutritious, inexpensive and global fish stocks, with some exceptions, are healthy. Eat tuna with some thought. This lady deliberately went overboard on eating tuna, but the lesson is still a valuable one. My advice to people, particularly if cost is an issue, (as it is for most of us), is to at least supplement tuna consumption with canned Alaska salmon. Cold water fatty fish are so good for us! Cold water fatty fish, such as tuna and salmon are the first specific food ever endorsed by the American Heart Association because it has such a profoundly positive effect upon human health. At Pure Alaska Salmon Company LLC, we encourage the consumption of canned salmon at lunch because we have noticed that a canned salmon lunch makes for a better day all around, and we don’t get that terrible vampire-like craving for sweets at 4 o’clock.
