About Wooden Island Wild

*Currently offering FREE doorstep delivery throughout Eastern Massachusetts*
Wooden Island Wild is a bicoastal Boston, MA/Sitka, Alaska family that fishes seasonally up in Southeast Alaska. Our catch (wild salmon, halibut, sablefish/black cod, and rockfish) is all caught with hook & line and from sustainably managed fisheries. On our 1939 wooden fishing vessel F/V Faithfull, we handle our fish with the utmost care by carefully gaffing them one hook, one fish at a time. We then clean and ice them promptly to ensure you'll never get that 'fishy' flavor and the meat stays high quality all the way to your plate. Our catch is vacuum packed and blast frozen fresh to 40 below in Sitka, then shipped slowly by barge/truck to Boston to ensure a lower carbon footprint. It lasts in the freezer for over a year, and is sashimi grade. Find us at farmers markets in the Cape Cod/Boston area, or place an order online for doorstep delivery from your fisherman!

We handle our catch with the utmost care because we respect the fish first and foremost. Our hook & line fisheries in Southeast Alaska are sustainably managed on both the federal and state level. The entire community is closely connected with the resource and there is a constant push and pull to stay in line with our collective conservation values. Our fishery is intertwined with everything from the local library and coffee shop, to the local schools where fishermen donate salmon for lunches and come in to educate students on the fishery and ecosystem. Our cooperative allows for more fair access, supporting young fishermen with insurance for wooden boats and support for marketing in the off season. We hope to share all of these fishing community values with Boston, Cape Cod and the greater Northeast. We are all in this together, and the more fishermen can connect with each other and their communities, the better.
