The icy waters bordering Alaska’s 34,000 miles of coastline are the largest, most productive-commercial fishing grounds in the world. Alaska’s rich abundance of marine life is supported by lakes, rivers, streams, bays, and fjords. Alaska’s waters contain five species of salmon, three varieties of crab, halibut, rockfish, cod, Alaska pollock, sablefish, herring, shellfish, and several varieties of sole and flounder.
Alaska Seafood Company’s fish are wild and sustainable. Salmon and halibut swim freely in the Bearing Sea, Gulf of Alaska, Southeast Alaska, and the waters of the North Pacific Ocean. This habitat creates seafood with a lean and firm texture, which provides a superior flavor.
Alaska Seafood Company, incorporated in 1987, is located in Juneau, Alaska. Our company was formed to take advantage of the new technology of the retort pouch, a “soft can” method of canning. The process allows for a whole smoked salmon fillet or fillet portion to be made shelf stable (no refrigeration required). Since then we have developed an entire line of shelf stable products under the name Alaska Cannery and Smokehouse, which are widely distributed to Gift Shops and “Big Box” retailers throughout Alaska and the North West.
Alaska Seafood Company was the first facility in Alaska to produce smoked salmon in the retort pouch. Also offered are boneless smoked salmon or non-smoked Wild Alaskan salmon and Halibut which is hand packed in traditional cans. Refrigerated products made available by our company include a line of hot and cold smoked salmon as well as Frozen Fresh Salmon and Halibut portions.
