These are vacuum packed skin on pin bone out fillets. Each fillet averages 1.25lbs. There are on average 20 fillets per 25lb box.
- PACKAGING. The fillets are the perfect size to share for a family meal or enjoy over several meals by one person. With each 25lb case comes around 20 pin-bone-out, skin on vacuum packaged fillets (a fillet is one whole side of a salmon).
- WILD & NATURAL DIET. Sockeye eat more crustaceans and plankton than other species, which leads to its darker natural colored meat. No food dies or antibiotics in our wild salmon.
- SASHIMI GRADE: Sockeye’s firm texture is excellent for sushi and our delicious poke bowls
- RICH TASTE & COLOR: Sockeye retains its deep red color throughout cooking
- NUTRITIOUS: Sockeye salmon is packed with 23 grams of protein per 3oz portion, and loaded with Omega-3, vitamin D, and Selenium. Eating wild Alaskan salmon helps prevent cancer, promotes skin and heart health, and can alleviate joint pain.
- COOK FROM FROZEN: It takes the pressure off when you can have your fish plated and served with in 30 minutes of being frozen.
Wild Alaska sockeye salmon fillets are well known for the brilliant red hue both raw and after cooking. This is due to their natural diet of krill and plankton which possess a carotenoid pigment called astaxanthin. This powerful compound not only provides a deep color and strong (but not fishy) flavor, but also is an antioxidant, may help improve heart health, brain function and is a vital nutrient for growth and development of prenatal babies and infants.
Our sockeye salmon is certified sustainable by the MSC (Marine Stewardship Counsel) and the RFM (Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management). AS A WILD RESOURCE, there is variability in the number of salmon that return to freshwater to spawn annually. Managers in Alaska set ‘ESCAPEMENT GOALS’ using the best science available to ensure enough fish return safely to the freshwater spawning grounds to reproduce. Biologists account for natural fluctuations in returns of salmon by managing the fisheries in-season to ensure the sustainability of Alaska’s wild sockeye salmon. Find more info at ~AlaskaSeafood.org
