Traditionally, the Arctic region of Alaska produces some of the earliest King salmon of the season. These fish have a high fat content and excellent meat color. This production begins around June 15. The King salmon from here rivals anything out of Copper River. Short openings, 100% iced boats and immediate processing makes these king salmon absolutely outstanding. We size grade at 7/11 lbs, 11/18 and 18/up. The majority of the fish average about 12 to 13 lbs.

Oncorhynchus mykiss

Steelhead
Market Names: Steelhead, Ocean Trout
Size: To 40 pounds, but most 8 to 11 pounds.
Season: November to March

A favorite of the finest chefs in the Pacific Northwest, steelhead are another of the region’s best-kept seafood secrets. Steelhead, which have a clean, sweet taste that is truly unique, are ocean-going rainbow trout that, like salmon, spend their lives in the sea and return to their natal rivers to spawn.

The Olympic Peninsula is home to some of the finest steelhead runs in the Pacific Northwest. These big, beautiful fish run in the late fall and early winter, so they are available at a time of year when no fresh wild salmon is, making them an especially attractive fresh fish option for your most discerning customers.

The steelhead caught by Quinault Nation fishermen is fished at the mouths of the river as soon as they return from the sea, which ensures that each fish is bright, silvery and full of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.
