The Crew

Salmon Sisters is run by co-founders, fishermen and sisters Emma and Claire, with support from their amazing small team. Emma and Claire grew up on a homestead in Alaska’s remote Aleutian Islands. Their family makes their livelihood harvesting wild seafood from Alaska’s pristine and bountiful waters. Since they were young, Emma and Claire have worked on commercial fishing boats and continue to fish each summer while running Salmon Sisters from land and sea. 

Emma and Claire fish in the Aleutian Islands, Copper River Delta, Prince William Sound, and Bristol Bay – along with their families in a wild and seasonal life.



Our Values

  • Food Security in Alaska – We give a portion of our proceeds, in the form of wild fish, to the Food Bank of Alaska to support healthy Alaskan communities connected to traditional and local wild food. 
  • Healthy Habitat – We partner with organizations working to protect marine ecosystems and the people who depend upon them in Alaska. 
  • Sustainable Commercial Fisheries – We promote Alaska’s responsibly-managed fisheries, fishermen as stewards of their marine ecosystem and Alaska seafood as a renewable resource for future generations. 
  • Coastal Culture – We tell stories of Alaskans’ connection to the ocean and all salmon people. 
  • Wild Places – We encourage connection to the natural world through work, play and stewardship.
  • Quality products and design  We offer original designs and functional products that are sustainably sourced and ethically manufactured for life on and by the ocean.

We respectfully acknowledge the land of the Dena’ina and Sugpiaq People, now the jurisdiction of the Ninilchik Village Tribe, on which we live and work in Homer, Alaska. We respectfully acknowledge the waters of the Alutiiq, Yup’ik, Unangax̂ and Eyak People on which our family fishes and makes a living. We deeply thank these individuals, communities and tribes for their original and continued stewardship.
