Wild Chinook Salmon

Fresh & Frozen Salmon Fillets
Ocean troll caught wild Chinook salmon are special. Each fish is individually caught on a trolled lure, usually at a fairly great depth (200 to 500 ft. or more). From these deep, clear, cold waters, where the salmon have been feeding on some of the tastiest seafood in the world, the salmon are pulled to the surface one at a time where they are quickly cleaned and immersed in slush ice to lock in all the delicate flavors and freshness of their unique diet.

Since these wild salmon are caught one by one, they are a little more expensive than other ways of catching salmon or raising salmon on farms, however, the exceptional taste and delicate flavors unique to ocean caught troll salmon are well worth it.

Wild salmon fillets or steaks are also completely natural, without dyes or toxins. You are eating not only one of the world’s tastiest fish but also the most healthy fish, high in Omega 3’s as well as flavor. Though most stocks of salmon in the Ocean are healthy, in prior years(2008 & 2009) commercial salmon fishing was closed to protect stocks of Klamath River Salmon and Sacramento River Salmon.  We are working to improve the identification and management of ocean-caught salmon, as well as to solve the problems of the Klamath River, and Sacramento River, and hope the future is better for ocean fishermen.
