Salmon

{alt_text}

Fresh Salmon from wild Alaskan waters.

Like many fish, salmon is nutritionally amazing. It provides high quality proteins, generous amounts of Vitamin D and Omega 3 which all bring benefits that help your heart, brain and even your sight.

We source most salmon in Alaska for very good reasons. The first being that Alaskan waters are among the cleanest in the world. Tests on Alaskan salmon show that it’s one of the healthiest foods out there and so are perfect for inspiration to try one our salmon recipes.

The other reason we choose Alaska is because of the very strict policies set by Alaska’s Board of Fisheries. These rules ensure a plentiful supply of salmon reach their breeding ground upstream to maintain a rich source of fish for generations to come.

When it comes to the actual fishing part, it’s important to know what it takes to retain the superior quality of salmon. In order to maintain freshness and flavour; the time between catch and canning needs to be kept to an absolute minimum, making this one of our shortest boat-to-plate journeys. 

The second the catch is made, it’s chilled in ice or refrigerated seawater for the short journey back to shore. The fish are then swiftly transported to the nearby local processing plant for grading, canning and distribution, all this before the fishermen have even made it home for supper. 

Handling, storage and processing are major factors in influencing the quality of salmon, which is why here at John West we pay so much attention to it.
