2012 Summer Sockeye is in Philly

August 2, 2012 in Seasonal Wild Catch

Redoubt Bay: A Link between the Beginning and the End of Life for Sockeye. In Southeast Alaska, the Redoubt Bay sockeye return this season has exceeded recent years. This is good news for the wild sockeye and for those of us looking forward to a small taste of this magnificent renewable resource. On July 12th the Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced modest increased limits for harvesters of Redoubt Bay sockeye. Otolith's 2012 sockeye were harvested during that same week and the freshest tasting portion fillets of sockeye are on their way to Philadelphia. Once harvested the sockeye are dressed or in other words headed and gutted with bellies packed on ice.

After a few days of harvesting dressed fish are either delivered or transported by way of another vessel called a tender back to landing port.Otolith’s sockeye were landed in Petersburg, AK and all cutting, sealing and freezing was performed by a small local processor.The following pictures were taked during processing:With skill and attention to detail each fillet must be carefully handled to assure the quality of the sockeye is protected.

The Most Beautiful of all Wild Salmon

Lastly, Otolith’s wild sockeye delicacy is frozen at temperatures down to -40.  This ultra-cold process takes only minutes to acheive the sushi-grade results that Otolith’s owners and clients have come to appreciate.

Just Before the Blast-freeze

The coho harvest is underway.  We look forward to sourcing all your wild and and sustainable salmon this year!  Cheers from Alaska.
