The Fresh Fish Project
The Idea for the Fresh Fish Project
comes from a unique experience our fishing crew has every year. Near
the beginning of the fishing season, before the peak of the run, and
the fisherman have time to prepare, those in the boats pick out a
couple of prime, live salmon to bleed and chill in preparation for our
next meal on the beach-site. Meanwhile, others stoke a fire on the
beach and wrap veggies in tin foil. The moment the boats hit the
shore the fish are walked 60 feet to the service table, filleted,
wrapped in foil, and placed in the coals. Those who claim they don’t
like seafood show up for these meals because the salmon is of a flavor
that very few will ever encounter. In an effort to see if this
“fresh” flavor can be preserved for a time, I have taken fresh,
live-bled, chilled fish and kept them on ice overnight. To my
surprise, when I barbequed them the next day, the meat still had that
fresh-caught flavor! I loved it!
Until now, this supreme taste and
quality has only been available to few, but it is the vision of Sought
Out Salmon to bring this experience to those outside Alaska. Two
factors must be in place for this to happen:
1. Sought Out Salmon must have the
resources to quickly process, package, and ship these fresh fish the
day they are caught.
2. The salmon must be pre-ordered
and the customer must be ready to receive them the day following the
We will be working this winter to
