About Wild Alaskan Salmon

.

The cold rushing waters of the Wild Alaskan rivers produce some of the richest, most naturally succulent salmon in the world. Wild Alaskan Chinook (King), Sockeye (Red) and Coho (Silver) salmon - with their rich color, firm texture, and wonderful flavor are renowned through out the world.

.

The rivers in the Gulf of Alaska are the most pristine river systems in the world. Because of their hundreds of miles in length and the challenges of their many rapids, the salmon that originate here are noted for their firm, bright red flesh, nutty flavor and the extra oils and fat that they carry to fuel them on their migration to their spawning grounds. The Chinook (King) and Sockeye (Red) salmon, arriving in early May, are first  salmon of the season to return to the rivers and streams of Alaska. Fortunately for those of us who appreciate their rich flavor and firm texture, the fats and Omega-3 oils are the kinds that your cardiologist would recommend.

.

Sockeye Salmon are the second most abundant species of salmon in Alaska. Sockeye Salmon spend one to four years in the Pacific Ocean and reach sizes of 4 to 7 pounds. Sockeye Salmon range far and wide in the nutrient-rich waters of the North Pacific Ocean feeding on natural plankton and fishes before returning to fresh water to spawn.

.

Chinook Salmon may migrate to the marine environment the spring after they hatch or can spend up to two years in the riparian environment prior to out migration. Chinook Salmon spend five years or more in the ocean reaching sizes of up to 60 pounds before returning to spawn.

.

Silver Salmon remain in fresh water a year before swimming to the ocean to feed and grow. Silvers return after three years and either swim up the Wild Alaskan to spawn, or spawn in one of many of the lake systems of the feed by the many river tributaries.
