About the Alaska Seafood Company2019-05-29T16:06:17-08:00

Wild and Sustainable

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.

Will My Seafood Arrive Frozen?2019-05-01T14:17:22-08:00

In most cases, your seafood will arrive in a completely frozen condition.  Sometimes your seafood may arrive in a partially thawed state due to high temperatures, shipping delays, or small order sizes. This should not be a concern for two reasons. First, the seafood is processed fresh and frozen only 1 time (for shipping purposes) resulting in a quality product that has not been exposed to multiple thawing and refreezing cycles. Second, the seafood portions are individually vacuum packed allowing them to be refrozen with no quality loss.

Seafood that is received cool to the touch can be refrozen without any quality loss.  In the rare occurrence where the seafood is greatly delayed in transit and is no longer cool to the touch, consumers should immediately discard the package. While this almost never happens, please do not file a claim with FedEx directly but contact us immediately.  FedEx requires the customer to provide the invoice and claim information for customer initiated claims.  We are able to expedite the claim process with the carrier and in many cases provide replacement product and shipping before the claim is approved.

We schedule shipments using the following guidelines to ensure the quality and freshness of our products.

  1. Fresh/Frozen fish is scheduled on Monday – Wednesday for overnight delivery.
  2. Smoked products are scheduled Monday and Tuesday for 2-day delivery. Orders received after 9:30 am PST on Tuesdays will be shipped on Wednesday.  We strongly recommend you place your smoked order prior to this to allow a buffer for carrier delays.
  3. Additionally, customers are encouraged to consider their local climates when making smaller orders.  Smaller orders that are shipped should arrive cool to the touch under normal conditions.  In the case this does not happen, please contact us directly rather than the carrier so we can file a claim with FedEx and expedite resolution.

If you have questions or concerns, please call (1-800-451-1400) or e-mail us.

How do I read your expiration dates in the code?2019-04-04T12:39:39-08:00

Cans, Jars and Retort pouches are virtually indefinite in shelf life. Anyone eating C-rations from WW II or Korean War era can attest to. We do operate with a guideline for nutritional purposes. Five years for cans and seven years for jars and pouches. After that nutritional will start falling off but they will still fool the tongue and stomach. We use Julian dating to establish when the product was made. See below for cans, this can be read on the can lid.
