One look at the vibrant red of the Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon will have you ready for dinnertime…anytime. Native to the Pacific Northwest, Sockeye are sometimes called Red, Blueback, or Kokanee (land-locked) Salmon, and are one of the most abundant salmon species in the Pacific. Sockeye Salmon are born in a river, but live in the ocean, and travel back up their river home to spawn. This abundance makes salmon a popular source of protein for customers all over the country. Measuring anywhere from 5 to 15 lbs. and growing up to 33 inches long, Alaskan Sockeye Salmon provide protein, along with plenty of other nutrients and health benefits in every center-cut filet. Each filet comes frozen to you boneless and with the skin on to ensure optimal texture and taste.
