We were recently invited to try a sample of Sitka Salmon Shares.
It’s a wild-caught Alaskan seafood delivery service. A collective of local fishermen pull the catch into their boats and quickly brings it to port.
There, it’s filleted, blast frozen to -50°F and individually vacuum-sealed, locking in the fresh-caught flavor.
A box of scrumptious fish is then FedExed to you.
While our box of four fillets was consumed in four days, the fish stays fresh-tasting in the freezer without degrading.
HOW DO THEY TASTE?
It doesn’t get better than this fresh fish.
The company’s motto is “from boat to doorstep.” The fish tastes like it was just pulled out of the water.
When we test fish or meat, we cook them simply, with no seasonings. The true test of flavor is how good they taste when they’re “naked.”
The Sitka Salmon Shares salmon and cod we tasted were so good, just steamed, that we had no need to add salt, pepper or lemon juice to the cooked fish. (We cooked it “medium rare.”)
Sitka Salmon Shares is Community Supported Fishery (CSF), the fish version of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), where farmers deliver boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables during the season.
Consumers purchase “shares” of the seafood harvest before the fishing season begins. The number of shares purchased dictates how much fish the fishermen catch.
Your share of the wild Alaskan catch is delivered to you monthly during the fishing season, which runs from April thru December.
The species and weight of your fish will vary, based on the plan you select.
You choose the species and quantity of fish for your monthly delivery, ranging from 3 to 9-month intervals (you can cancel at any time).
In 2019, the catch includes:
