Salmon and Halibut Species
There are five species of wild salmon in Alaska.
Sockeye, or Red, is known for its ruby red color and its delicate
flavor. King, or Chinook, is known for its full salmon flavor
and high oil content. Coho, or Silver, is a delightfully delicate
flavored fish with a light peach color. Keta, or Chum, is a
mild flavored fish with a light pink color. Finally, the Pink,
or the Humpy, tastes very similar to a trout.
There are no farmed salmon in Alaska! In fact
it is illegal to farm salmon in Alaska. The salmon runs here
in Alaska are very stable and should remain so into the future.
Department of Fish and Game manages the salmon runs
on an individual stream basis. This means that each spawning
stream has it's own unique escapement goal that must be reached
before any fishing activities(sportfishing or commercial fishing)take
place. If we continue in this fashion our salmn stocks are a
sustianable natural resource that will be with us for many generations
