Skuna Bay Salmon has introduced wild sockeye salmon to its seasonal offerings.

The salmon comes from the waters of Barkley Sound, and Skuna Bay will offer additional sockeye from other British Columbia fisheries later in the season. The sockeye comes from the same ocean waters as the company’s craft-raised Atlantic salmon and is prepared to the same standards as Skuna Bay’s original salmon.

The sockeye is hand cleaned and packed on ice to be delivered fresh from the ocean and packaged in Skuna Bay’s recycled and recyclable corrugated boxes that are individually signed and sealed and sent directly to chefs. The sockeye is sold exclusively through its partners — Santa Monica Seafood in the Southwest and Fortune Fish in the Midwest.

“We are proud to support small, local fishers who take deep pride in responsibly catching their wild sockeye in this spectacular remote setting the same way that our farmers do in nurturing and harvest craft raised Skuna Bay salmon,” said Stewart Hawthorn, Skuna Bay’s head farmer. “We have a shared value of preserving and respecting the environment as we provide delicious, healthy salmon to chefs and diners who appreciate it.”
