It’s still dark out when the captain yells, “rise and shine!” You can’t argue with the captain (even if he is your husband). I roll out of the bunk and pull on my wool socks and rubber boots. We have about 15 minutes before we have to set the gear; just enough time to make a pot of strong coffee and eat a granola bar. It’s early September in Alaska and even though the summer has been sunnier than normal, it’s still pretty chilly out at 5 a.m., so I slip on a sweatshirt and a warm hat before heading out on deck.

Nestled in the Lower Yukon River in western Alaska is the home of Kwik’Pak Fisheries (pronounced kwee’puck, meaning”great river”) We have a long standing partnership with Kwik’Pak Fisheries and recently traveled to Alaska to visit them. This is where some of the finest salmon in the world, wild Yukon River salmon, are caught. This Responsibly Sourced salmon is definitely Alaska’s best kept secret because of its extraordinary qualities that truly make it in a class of its own.

Fresh Alaskan salmon is almost here at Lunds and Byerlys! We are so excited for the season to start as we bring in the freshest and highest quality of salmon that you can find in Alaska. We have traveled to various regions of the Great Frontier scouring for the best salmon to bring home to you year after year. And no one in the world knows salmon like our friends up in Alaska.
