Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood is a small, privately-owned fishery based in King Salmon, Alaska. This is great choice for consumers who are looking for a mom-and-pop-style company that controls every part of the fishing process. They never compromise on quality or sustainability in their salmon. The fish that arrive on your doorstep were often pulled from the ocean only a few days before. As the company likes to say, the only way to get it fresher is to come to Bristol Bay yourself.

History and Story
The story of Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood starts with Captain Tony Wood who worked as a hunting and fishing guide to some of the best resorts in Southwest Alaska. During this time, he learned two things. First, fresh and wild salmon tastes amazing while delivering substantial health benefits. And second, not enough people were able to enjoy everything that salmon had to offer because it would sit on a fishing boat for a few days, then transported to a huge processing center and distribution centers before heading to your local seafood and supermarkets.
Captain Tony Wood decided to do it better and bring salmon to consumers while the quality of the fish was still at its peak. He caught a big break when Heather Huffman came on board as manager, co-owner, and wife. In 2014, they added Josh Hermes as Operations Manager and began to expand their presence at local organic markets.
Quality and Sustainability
Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood ensures the highest measures of quality and sustainability by avoiding the lure of scaling up to a massive commercial operation. From catching the fish to delivering them to the shore each day, from cleaning and processing them to freezing and sealing them, they handle every part of the process. By using a wet process, they offer some of the highest-quality wild salmon in the world. They strictly follow all the rules and guidelines issued by the State of Alaska and The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
