A third-generation Alaskan, Kyle Lints started his commercial fishing career at 6 years old. Emily does the direct marketing for Kyle’s yearly catch with the broader goal of connecting customers with sustainable food producers. With 4 boats in their fleet, they’re able to sell a considerable surplus of salmon to a limited number of customers across the country. The company heavily encourages pre-orders and bulk purchases, so while they start shipping in September, they typically sell out before the end of fall. Small Scales Seafood is a great option for people who are interested in buying wild Alaskan salmon in bulk and are prepared to place an order in the spring for fall salmon delivery.

Type of Fish

Sockeye salmon, Pacific Halibut, Alaskan Rockfish, Pacific Cod

Quality and Sustainability

In addition to halibut, cod and rockfish caught with F/V Skiffy, a Tolman skiff longliner, the salmon are caught with a drift gillnet in Bristol Bay. Each piece of fish sold through Seafood Shares is given the “A Grade,” the best of the best, hand-picked off the top of the whole salmon run. The catch is promptly bled and chilled in refrigerated salt water. The salmon is offloaded at least once a day where it is filleted, deboned, vacuum-sealed and flash frozen.

Small Scales Seafood is fully committed to the goal of sustainable fishing. The company follows all the regulations set forth by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which ensures escapement goals are consistently met and Bristol Bay’s five major river districts can continue to serve as a sustainable resource of wild salmon for future generations.
