Sustainable Salmon From Alaska to You

August 26, 2011

For our next installment of the Crown Prince Global Spotlight Series, we head to Alaska. The northernmost of the fifty United States, Alaska has a long history of fishing and a deep appreciation for good seafood.

If you’re eating any of our salmon, you’re enjoying wild-caught, sustainably-harvested, hand-packed salmon sourced from the chilly Pacific waters off the Alaskan coast. We choose our partners very carefully, and the Smoked Coho Salmon seafood packer we work with in Alaska is a micro-cannery specializing in high-quality, shelf-stable seafood products.

Our Smoked Coho canning partner runs an especially green operation. The heat the cannery generates is re-circulated throughout the facility so that no fossil fuels are used to keep the building warm (this is no small feat in Alaska!) And instead of throwing away fish scraps left over from processing, our packer smokes and cooks down the remaining pieces, creating a 95% protein dog treat.

If you love salmon, love Alaska, and love Alaskan salmon, then this leg of the Global Spotlight journey may just be your favorite yet. Stay tuned for more!
