What kind of salmon comes from Alaska?
All Alaska salmon is wild, in fact salmon farming is illegal in Alaska. There are actually five species of Pacific salmon: King, Sockeye, Coho, Keta, and Pink. King is often marketed as Chinook, Sockeye as Red, and Coho as Silver, but we prefer the more colloquial terms. What the locals call them.
What is the difference between White King & King Salmon?
King (also called Chinook) salmon with white or red meat are the same species, Onchorhynchus tshawytscha. From a nutritional standpoint, research has shown the white kings and the red-fleshed kings are identical in composition of lipids, moisture, protein and omega -3 fatty acids, the “good” fats that can protect one from heart disease. But white kings are preferred by many fans of king salmon.The rich, red meat of a wild Alaska king salmon is a vivid sight. Translucent and buttery, the deep red color comes from pigments in crustaceans in the salmons’ diet. Some king salmon – about one in 20 – have white meat due to an inability to process these pigments in their food. Although these white kings have long been coveted by many Alaskans.

Is your product different from the pouched boxes of smoked salmon I get at grocery stores?
It's not really. What a lot of folks don't realize is that those pouches are technically cans. Though they don't look it, the technology is the same. Due to the tinned presentation, our products do however retain a higher-quality presentation as the hard tins ensure that the salmon retains the same shape and texture as when it was packed and is not damaged due to the durable nature of the tin.
