Smoked Coho Salmon

$28.00

This coho is smoked using a "hot smoke" technique, the fish is marinated in a salty brine, then is smoked at temperatures above 120°F, and is finally flash-frozen to maintain its delicious, smoky flavor and guarantee its longest shelf life.  

Coho Salmon is a medium fatty salmon with a delicate flavor known for its distinct orange-red meat. In its smoked presentation, it is rich and flaky, a perfect topper for salads, eggs, rice bowls, bagels...you name it!

 

  • Our Coho is caught in Southeast Alaska waters by our friends at the Seafood Producers Cooperative and Sitka Salmon Shares. In Kodiak, we source from the Suna'q tribe and Kodiak Fresh Seafood.
  • Salmon populations in Alaska are closely monitored, regarding it not only for its economic value, but also for its deep cultural significance.
  • Every year, the Pacific Fishery Management Council reviews reports of the previous fishing season and current estimates of salmon abundance to prevent overharvest through limits on the fishing season length, quotas, and gear restrictions.
  • Two independent certification standards guarantee the responsible management of the Alaskan Coho fishery: the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). (ASMI, Coho Salmon)

 

  • Excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins & minerals.
  • Packed with Omega-3 fatty acids & protein.

 

  • Coho belongs to one of the five species of Salmon in Alaskan Waters and are also known as Silver Salmon due to the metallic blue color of their flanks, which turn red during spawning season to attract a mate.
  • As most other salmon species, they hatch in streams and migrate to the ocean, where they spend 2 - 3 years as adults and then return to their natal freshwater streams to spawn, sometimes traveling over 1000 miles! (NOAA, Coho Salmon)
  • They can be found as far south as central California
