Salmon is tasty and healthyWild Pacific Salmon

The fishermen of Fairweather Fish catch and sell all five species of wild Alaska salmon:  chinook, coho, sockeye, pink and chum.  Each of these species has its own life history and its own habitat requirements, and each has its own unique characteristics and uses as a delicious source of food.
All five salmon species benefit from a resource management system that emphasizes conservation, and ensures that enough fish migrate upstream to spawn (reproduce) and sustain the fisheries.  And because they migrate freely at sea, these wild salmon eat other wild marine life.  Swimming free makes Alaskan wild salmon strong, and gives their flesh its firm texture.  Because they swim in the open ocean they are free from the parasitic afflictions of farm fish and are less likely to contract diseases spread in enclosed fish farm spaces.
