Our Fishermen

When ocean-run sockeye salmon begin migrating past Alaska’s Eastern Aleutian Islands and Western Alaska Peninsula each summer, local families head out to the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea to fish.


This is a small core of between 20 and 30 boats. The boats, primarily equipped with setnet gear, are also small—best for this slow, methodical high-quality fishery. All are family operations helping to growing the Aleutia brand and help solidify it as the highest quality sockeye available.
