SHIPS WEEK OF JUNE 19th
This year marks SeaBear's 23rd year of bringing you fresh and wild Copper River Sockeye salmon!
The Story of the Copper River:
High on Alaska's remote Mt. Wrangell, the melting ice of Copper Glacier gives birth to the legendary Copper River - a raging 300-mile river, which is home to the most anticipated, and celebrated, wild salmon run in the world. Beginning 3,600 feet above sea level, the Copper River squeezes its way through narrow canyons with walls of rock towering hundreds of feet above the river. As the Copper River forces its way downstream, it creates fast currents and powerful waves until it ultimately reaches sea level at the Copper River flats where it meets the Gulf of Alaska. Copper River Salmon has been commercially harvested since 1889.
Today these thoroughbreds of the sea are widely recognized for the unmatched culinary experience they offer, as they find their way to fine restaurants and markets across the country direct from one of the most pristine, most rugged, most untouched corners of the world.
What You Can Expect from SeaBear:
Your Fresh Salmon will be hand-filleted and shipped fresh, never frozen. It should arrive cool to the touch, on gel ice packs. We provide free sea salt & cracked pepper with every order of this phenomenal fresh salmon along with cooking instructions, storage guidelines, and tips to make this a memorable meal.
Whole Copper River Sockeye Salmon - Headed and gutted, great for a celebratory BBQ or for roasting whole.
**Please note, due to these fish being so fresh and tender, removing all bones is not possible, so fillets will likely contain bones.
**Any additional items ordered with a Fresh & Wild Event will ship on the same day as the event.
