We are big believers in honoring everything we catch. We believe every fish has a soul and we thank each of them for their life. We brain spike our fish for instant death to limit the amount of suffering. We also stay up to date with the highest quality practices such as pressure bleeding and partial ike-jime so each fish is at its best. We donate to like causes to help protect our wild fish runs, we are members of groups standing up for our fisheries as well as owning our own garbage tongs and helping clean up the coast when we can. We have a community supported fishery that we rely on the community to help front some of the expensive costs of starting up again each season. We have had to source fish direct from my mom and sister (each run their own boats) to fill larger orders in the past and are trying to work out logistics to pair with a local shrimp operation to be able to offer shrimp in the future. We get very creative as far as working towards a zero waste model. We offer all sorts of different parts of fish, such as scraping carcasses for making burger, selling heads, carcasses for bone broth kits, selling bellies, collars, frozen roe still in skeins. We also take the time to educate the consumer on being more accepting of the lesser known salmon such as pinks and keta and educating them on quality handling leading to exceptional taste even in the non-desirable species. We also educate that being more open to try out these other species will help take the pressure off the more popular species. We pride ourselves in working directly with the consumer and making things as readily available as can be. We change up our buying options for people, do house deliveries when needed and really work towards allowing all households to be able to access and afford good seafood. Our CSF this year we included Keta and Coho in our salmon boxes, allowing us to lower the cost of our salmon box. We also are offering the options of monthly, every other month, as well as once every 3 month for our CSF schedule to help be more appealing and doable for all household incomes and sizes. I am a 4th generation fisherman and we rely on the health and longevity of the ocean for our and our families well being. We really try to be good stewards of the environment and try to educate others on the topic. We see most all parts of catching, processing, packaging, shipping and selling our product. When we cannot fillet and freeze our product, we hire small local companies who we know on a first name basis to process our fish for us.
