Happy Salmon Love Day, also known as Valentine's Day! Did you know – YOU are the apple of our (sock)eye! Thank you for being our forever valentines & our salmon family. Look below for some of the ways we're sharing the love this year.

LEARN TO SHUCK OYSTERS & SHARE LOVE FROM THE SEA
How else do you say “I love you?” We eat seafood with our loved ones and nourish their hearts, bodies, and minds with healthy food. Light some candles, sharpen your knifes, and get cooking! Shucking fresh oysters for someone stirs the senses and is a recipe for romance. Our Oysters on the Half Shell "recipe" from The Salmon Sisters cookbook shares tricks for successful oyster shucking and includes a tasty Cilantro Mignonette. The perfect way to share love from the sea this Valentine's Day.
MAKE SALMON ART
Here's a free printable Salmon Love coloring page to keep the kids busy while you're shucking oysters! Just right-click to download, print and pull out the art supplies. And while they're at it, have them try making these cute and simple heart fish valentines (or these!) and don't forget to jump in and make a few too.
GIVE FISH & SHARE THE SALMON LOVE WITH YOUR COMMUNITY
If you have a pantry full of canned salmon, tinned fish, or smoked provisions, join us in giving fish to the people in your community who need it most. We give canned and frozen salmon to our local food bank in Alaska, which provides an important healthy protein source for families who might not have access to it otherwise. Our customers help us with these donations through our Give Fish Project, which sets aside a portion of proceeds to purchase this seafood. If your business or family finds itself in a position to give this season, it’s easy to swing by your local food bank (there is usually an easy drop box outside) and feel the salmon love all around. Learn more about ways to give through the Food Bank of Alaska and the Feeding America directory.
