What Makes Copper River Salmon Special?
Wild Salmon are unique in that they begin life in fresh water. Once hatched, they make their way out to the ocean where they continue to grow for several years. When fully mature, the adult Salmon begins the journey back up the stream to breed and lay new eggs. During the arduous trip upstream, salmon do not feed. Instead, they rely on fat stores to provide energy for the epic journey.
This is where Copper River King Salmon are standouts. The Copper River is 290 miles long, draining 24,000 square miles of Alaska including the melt-water from several glaciers. The river drops 12 feet per mile, moving its great volume of water at 7 miles per hour. In terms of water discharge, it ranks as the tenth-largest river in the US. Because of the sheer size of this famous Alaska river, Copper River Salmon must store a significant amount of energy (omega-rich fats) to swim upstream and breed. This is why Copper River Salmon has the reputation of being the fattest and richest flavored Salmon there is.
Our Copper River King Salmon is caught just before this upstream journey, yielding fillet cuts that are delicious and rich in healthful omega-3s. Share this fish with friends, and stock up for yourself!.
