About The Partner: Haines Packing Company

Nestled in the small community of Haines, Alaska sits a small cannery and dock along the stunning blue waters. Inside is the story of the Haines Packing Company, a small, artisan seafood producer that is independently owned and operated by a third-generation Alaskan. Harry Reitze oversees every aspect of the operation - communicating from his team to the fleet and customers from near and far. One of the primary goals of our newest Fresh & Wild partner is that no fish is ever overlooked.

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. Reserve yours today. 

*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.

No matter how you prefer to cook your Fresh & Wild fillet, taking your time is key. Slow cooking helps seal in those natural juices for a more flavorful dish. Look for the flesh to go from translucent to mostly opaque and flake easily with a fork to know it's done.

For baking, preheat your oven to 275°F. Lay your fillet on a cookie sheet brushed with olive oil, skin side down, and bake for around 15-18 minutes without flipping.

If you're grilling, brush your grill with olive oil before heating. Once it's medium-hot (hold your hand 6 inches above the grill for 5 seconds), brush the top of each fillet with olive oil and place them on the grill. Season with salt and pepper, grill until the edges start turning opaque, flip once, and continue until fully cooked.

Fresh fish is a wonderful addition to your meals, offering both flavor and nutrition. To preserve its quality and safety, follow these tips for storing fresh fish:

  1. Keep it cold: When your Fresh & Wild catch arrives, promptly rinse the fillets in cold water, pat dry and refrigerate. For best results, place it on a bed of ice or use ice packs to maintain a cold temperature.
  2. Wrap it up: Use plastic wrap and a freezer bag to tightly wrap the fish if looking to freeze. This helps in keeping the fish fresh.
  3. Plan your meal: Fresh fish is most enjoyable within 1 to 3 days after delivery. If you don't plan to use it within this timeframe and are considering freezing, the fillet(s) will keep in the freezer for approximately 30 days. Upon thawing, your fillet(s) should be enjoyed within 1-2 days.

How is the freshness of the fish guaranteed during delivery? 

Your Fresh & Wild fillet will ship fresh, never frozen. It should arrive cool to the touch on gel ice packs. Our fresh events ship with expedited shipping and are packaged in insulated bags that keep them cool.

Can I freeze my fresh fish?

Your fresh fillets can be frozen & will keep in the freezer for approximately 30 days; once thawed it should be cooked and used within 1-2 days.  We recommend after rinsing the fillets and patting dry, to wrap in a plastic wrap and then in a freezer bag before freezing.

Do the Fresh & Wild filets contain bones? 

Your Fresh & Wild fish has been hand-filleted and may come with a few pin bones as these are hard to remove in fresh fish.

Where do you source your fresh fish? 

We work with different fishing companies and have many catch locations for our Fresh & Wild Events. Your order will come with an insert that will give you details of where the product came from. Some of our most favorite catch locations are Columbia River, Salish Sea, Prince William Sound, Cook Inlet, and of course Copper River.
