These wild coho salmon are hook & line caught in Southeast Alaska. Cleaned, catheter-bled, and fresh-frozen as they come out of the sea. Simply put, these are the freshest coho salmon you can eat.
“Epic quality – right up there with Reefnet caught salmon” – Lummi Island Wild Crew
It is with great pride we introduce new partner fishers Joel & Tele on the F/V Nerka. “Driven by quality rather than quantity and with minimal by-catch, trolling is a beautifully inefficient fishery. That’s what we love about it.”- Tele & Joel.
You can see why they’re our kind our fishers. Slow food style, quality focused, and troll-caught Alaskan coho salmon are a “Best Choice” seafood from Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
Tele and Joel shared more of their story with us: “For coho salmon we move inland, where the cold, clean North Pacific pounds a rocky shoreline crowned with a spruce-scented, seemingly endless green: the Tongass, the world’s largest remaining temperate rainforest, “America’s Salmon Forest.” Our companions are humpback whales and herring, brown bears and bald eagles, albatross and orca. This glorious ecosystem, meticulously stewarded with decades of strict conservation-based fisheries management, cultivates abundant salmon stocks. Every day, we marvel at the remarkable gift of having grown up doing this work, giving thanks for the salmon-loving friends who help us make fishing our life.”
More info: Also known as silver salmon, cohos have a red-orange color, with a traditional, rich salmon flavor. Coho eat other fish as well as zooplankton, and have a slightly stronger salmon flavor than sockeye salmon. An excellent choice for grilling, broiling, sautéing, baking, poaching, steaming, and smoking.

We’ve ordered these fillets several times to salt cure, as well as pan fry. The quality and consistency has been excellent, and even my picky 10 year old, gobbles up the salmon in record time. Customer service has been fantastic, as well, as we had a few mishaps with different types of salmon sent to us and “lost” ikura (our fault), which the team quickly resolved. We’ll definitely keep ordering as soon as stocks come back.

I seldom take the time to express my opinion about a product. However, I just could not contain the joy and satisfaction derived from my delightful experience with Lummi Island Wild, after having researched various other companies. Specifically, I ordered several pounds of your wild Coho salmon and feel compelled to share my experience. Even before becoming a vegetarian over 20 years ago, I would occasionally enjoy a filet of salmon as I traveled several continents. I can say, without equivocation and my culinary skills aside, yours was some of the best salmon I’ve ever had. It was quite delectable, to say the least and not one bone in it! I have since shared my experience with relatives and friends who will be ordering as well. Thank you, and a gentleman named Ian, in particular, who was very helpful in answering my questions before I placed my order. I am happy to be a new member of the Lummi Island Wild family! Bon appétit!

Seems like the fish was frozen for some time. My husband could not eat it.
Hi Kelley, A higher quality, frozen fresh, coho does not exist. Does your husband like other salmon? We’ll be reaching out to follow up with you.
