FAQs

  1. What can I expect when my salmon is shipped?
  • We take the utmost care in preparing and shipping your Sockeye salmon to you. Each of our fillets and portions is individually frozen and vacuum packed to retain the freshness and quality that respects the fish and that our customers deserve.
  • The fillets or portions are packed in an insulated shipping carton and special thermal liner. Before each box is sealed, dry ice is added to ensure your salmon will stay frozen until it reaches its destination. The quantity of dry ice used depends on where the salmon is headed.
  • We use FedEx 2-day ground for most of our shipping – this means most of our customers will receive their order in 1-3 days from the ship date. However, when a customer is outside of that area, we will send via 2-day air or a combination of methods.
  1. Can I have my order shipped to a PO Box?
    • Unfortunately, we cannot deliver this perishable product to a PO Box.
  1. Can one 20 lb. case be split and sent to two locations?
    • Our program is designed to send to one location. At this time, it isn’t possible for us to divide a case and ship to two locations. If 20 lbs. is too much, why not consider sharing with one of your local friends?
  1. How long will the salmon keep in my freezer?
    • We take great care in the handling of our Sockeye salmon. From the time the fish is caught and stored in 33 degree circulating sea water until it is flash frozen at sub-zero temperatures, maintaining the quality for our customers is on our mind. When your fish arrives, we recommend placing it in your freezer as soon as possible. Keeping the fish frozen will ensure that each piece you thaw, prepare, and eat will taste delicious. Your salmon will keep the quality we guarantee for up to a year.
  1. What is the best way to thaw the salmon?
    • Thawing your salmon is an easy process! We recommend either removing the salmon from the original packaging and placing on a covered dish in your refrigerator, or snipping the package to allow air circulation, and placing in the refrigerator. Your salmon will thaw overnight.
    • If you need to thaw your fish more quickly, you can submerge the (still sealed) package in cold water and it will thaw in 30 minutes to an hour.
  1. What is the best way to cook the salmon?
    • You are in for a treat! Salmon is incredibly versatile and can be grilled, baked, sauteed, poached or even stir-fried! The firm flesh is just waiting for the seasoning, marinade, or sauce that pleases your personal taste.
