What makes Copper River king salmon so special?
Each May, the glacier-fed Copper River in south-central Alaska plays host to the momentous event when king salmon return to their ancestral spawning grounds deep in the Alaskan backcountry. It is the very first salmon run of the year and Copper River king salmon are unlike any other. They accumulate extra fat stores while living in the ocean, giving them the fuel necessary to swim hundreds of miles upstream and gain thousands of feet of elevation while facing near-freezing water temperatures. Those extra fat stores produce salmon with exceptionally rich, luscious flavor and large, velvety flakes. Like all seafood harvested in Alaska, Copper River salmon is MSC certified sustainable.* The Copper River king salmon run is carefully managed to ensure the long-term health of the run. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game sets strict quotas on the number of fish that can be harvested each year, and carefully counts the "escapement"-the number of fish that get past fisherman and make it back upstream to spawn.
