March 1, 2017

"When you choose wild Alaska seafood you’re supporting the entire system behind the commercial fishermen — the village, the local seafood processor, the college kid working on the slime line, the local net maker, the boat mechanic who is more of a family member than a friend to the fishermen. You are respecting and honoring the generations of fishermen who have braved the sea for glory and gain before us, respecting how people have worked with – not against – the land and made use of everything, without excess waste. You are giving us a purpose, a place, a chance to be independent in our livelihoods and the ability to bring you this food with our blood, sweat and tears behind it."
