Alaskan Salmon

  

IT'S NATURALLY BETTER

The cold, clear waters off Alaska's 34,000 mile coastline are the world's greatest resource for natural, wild salmon. There, the five species of Alaska Salmon mature in an unmatched natural environment that provides them with superior flavor, color, and texture. This makes Alaska Salmon the salmon of choice of foodservice operators throughout the world. Quick frozen within hours of being harvested at the peak of its lifecycle, Alaska Salmon offers your foodservice customers these unique advantages:

A NATURAL ADVANTAGE

Alaska Salmon has a richer color, firmer texture, and better flavor than industrially-produced salmon. This natural superiority results from a life spent feeding on the sea's natural foods while swimming against the strong currents of the cold, clean North Pacific.

A FRESHER-FROZEN ADVANTAGE

The Alaska seafood industry has perfected advanced quick-freezing technology which is unique in its ability to capture the fresh-caught flavor of the salmon while preserving the fish's firm texture and rich color.

YEAR-ROUND AVAILABILITY

Fresher-frozen natural Alaska Salmon is available year-round in portion-controlled sizes in a variety of packaging and product forms. Fresher-frozen products minimize shrink and keep margins high.

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION

Natural Alaska Salmon is an excellent source of high quality protein, and contains predominantly healthy unsaturated fats.
