Alaska Seafood Company is committed to wild and sustainably harvested seafood sources but are best known for their specialty and premium quality seafood processing. Between the Bearing Sea, Gulf of Alaska, Southeast Alaska, and the waters of the North Pacific Ocean, the company gives credit to the quality of the state’s marine habitat and the superior flavor it creates for locally-sourced seafood.
That said, what sets this company apart from the rest of the industry is the availability of the retort pouch, a “soft can” method of canning. The process allows for a whole smoked salmon fillet or fillet portion to be made shelf-stable—with no refrigeration needed. So while Alaska Seafood Company continues to focus on traditional markets for freshly-packed, flash-frozen seafood, this company also operates as Alaska Cannery and Smokehouse with its own line of shelf-stable products.
Alaska Seafood Company uses FedEx Overnight for frozen seafood and FedEx 2-Day for hot-smoked items available throughout the U.S. This shipping service is only available Monday through Wednesday. The company uses USPS Priority Mail for shelf-stable items, and this service is available Monday through Saturday. International shipping is also available for these shelf-stable items. Orders must be received before 2PM PST to be included with the following day’s shipment.
