Iliamna Fish Co. is a family-owned cooperative; we've been fishing together on the Bering Sea in Bristol Bay, Alaska for three generations. Since 2010, we've been inviting individuals to take part in our sustainably managed (MSC-certified, Monterey Bay Aquarium-recommended, and Environmental Defense Fund "Eco-best choice") wild sockeye salmon fishery, as shareholders in our harvest. Our customers include Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Applewood Restaurant in Brooklyn, Estiatorio Milos in Manhattan, and Restaurant North in Armonk.
A share is ownership of part of our harvest, a wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fishery. A single share is 12 lbs of premium, wild sockeye, that we've caught by hand for you in our small, 20-foot-long boats. Your 12 lb share of wild sockeye will consist of 6 to 7 individually vacuum-sealed and flash frozen, hand-cut whole fillets. Each fillet weighs approximately 1.85 lbs and serves six adults. A 12 lb share fits easily into a standard refrigerator freezer, with room to spare.
The total cost of a 12 lb share is $208. Salmon shareholders agree to pay for their entire season of wild salmon, with a 50% deposit due ($104.00) when you sign up. You'll pay for the second half of your share when you pick up (or before, if you wish.) Your deposit enables us (your fisherwomen & men) to plan for the season and to keep your share price affordable.
You can choose between four pickup locations (2 in Manhattan and 2 in Brooklyn). You'll choose the location, date, and time during the sign-up process from our availability calendar.
