Wild Alaska Salmon VS Farm Raised
Wild caught salmon: All natural and sustainably caught and is verified as such by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI). Our wild salmon is harvested straight from the icy waters of Bristol Bay in Alaska and processed by us within 24 hours after the catch. That means any Wild Alaskan Salmon you purchase from us will taste just as fresh as the day it was caught! That is a guarantee straight from Captain Tony.
Farm-raised salmon: Salmon are kept in pens, fed grain and unable to swim. This produces fish high in unhealthy fats. They are fed antibiotics to reduce disease and are dyed to look like fish living naturally in the wild.
ASMI is a public corporation of the State of Alaska which is the state’s official seafood marketing arm. ASMI promotes Alaska Seafood throughout the U.S. and in 17 other countries.

Flavor difference between Wild Alaska Sockeye and Wild Alaska King
First of all, the flavor depends on the fat content and diet of the salmon which is different in both species, but it also has a lot to do with how the fish has been handled. You can have two of the very same species of fish caught in the same area that look, feel and taste completely different. That’s all due to the handling of the fish as soon as it’s caught or lack thereof. Captain Tony and his crew fish, process and blast freeze our salmon the same day they are caught. All of our salmon is 100% wild caught and we add absolutely nothing to the finished product.
|Salmon Species||Flavor & Texture||Preparation Tips||Nutrition Facts|
Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (Red)
||Delicious grilled, roasted, or sautéed. Try a savory sauce such as a soy marinate or simply season with salt, pepper, and fresh lemon.||
Wild Alaskan King (Chinook) Salmon
||Perfect grilled or sautéed. The melt in your mouth meat can get by with as little as a sprinkling of your favorite seasonings or Capt. Tony’s Wild Alaska Rub.||
