Salmon Fishing in Seward, Alaska


Not only do we love catching salmon, we love eating it as well and do so several times a week. Wild Alaska salmon are not endangered species. Salmon from Alaska have remained abundant because the fisheries have been well-managed and the spawning rivers and streams have been largely preserved free of pollution and environmental degradation. Feeding on organic marine organisms, Alaska salmon is additive-free and provides healthful, natural vitamins, minerals, nutrients and heart/brain-healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Consumption of Wild Alaska salmon is NOT subject to the same restrictions recently recommended by the FDA for farmed fish. Alaska's public health officials have advised the unrestricted consumption of Alaska salmon by everyone, including pregnant, nursing women and children.
