The Alaska salmon fishery has won awards across the board for stewardship of this precious domestic food resource.
Sustainability is the linchpin of “green” resource management, and is increasingly important to people in their food choices.
Most of us do not have time to be social activists, but in our food choices we have the ultimate and most powerful “vote”: our dollars — money talks like nothing else.
Purchasing fish from sustainable fisheries encourages sustainable fishing practices for all fisheries around the globe.
Alaska salmon have been designated a TOP TEN “SUPER GREEN” food by the influential Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program.
A “SUPER GREEN” food is one which is exceptionally good for human health AND is a healthy natural resource. SUPER-GREEN foods must have low contamination, be rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and are on the Seafood Watch’s Best Choices — Alaska salmon easily meets all three criteria.

The Alaska salmon industry is made up of independent, small-boat fishing families, including many Native American families and villages, thus supporting cultures, families and the environment.
