||In order to maintain perfect freshness and prevent
bruising and handling, our salmon are seine caught by a fishing cooperative
called the Chignik Seafood Producer’s Alliance. Our fish are all
kept live until they are ready for processing. After a fisherman
catches his fish they are delicately pumped directly from his net into
a delivery boat which transports them to our live net holding pen attached
to the side of our floating processor.
|This live net holding pen is tied alongside
the Wild Salmon or New West, (as pictured to the left) our own processing
boats right on the fishing grounds. These salmon swim free until we are
ready to process them, when we take this fish out of the pen and immediately
bleed and process them. We carefully handle each fish, selecting
only the finest for our filleting process. Working with the cooperative
and receiving daily deliveries of live fish allows us to always have perfectly
fresh fish to process, putting our quality miles ahead of conventional
After being bled and carefully selected these fresh pre-rigor Alaska
salmon are immediately cut into boneless fillets using a new patented machine
from TBRS Technology. This exclusive technology makes a precision cut to
the fish that eliminates bones. This is the only method in the world that
removes pin bones from fresh, just caught, fish. This whole operation
takes place on our boat at sea, assuring you unbeatable quality.
To lock in that just-caught fresh quality, our salmon fillets are immediately
sealed in special polypropylene/nylon bags. The fillets are then
fed into a blast freezer and quick-frozen to ensure superior texture and
flavor. In summary, we take live fish and turn them into frozen,
boneless fillets in about 5 minutes, there is nothing as fresh as frozen
at sea! These bags will seal in that freshness for years when kept frozen.
Our process assures you that every Alaska Fisherman’s Catch fillet is fresher
than so-called “fresh” salmon will be at least days (or weeks) old before
it reaches the market.
