Seafood

First of the Season Copper River Salmon

from Cordova, AK arrives on May 16

Haggen is proud to offer some of the world’s finest wild salmon from the mouth of the Copper River in Alaska. This year, we are counting down to the first fish of the season arriving at our Woodinville store! Our Seafood Buyer, Amber, will be updating us along the way as the first salmon makes the trip from Alaska to our seafood counter with a timer in tow so you’ll know just how fresh it really is. Stay tuned to our social media for the first sighting of the salmon arriving in record time just after the official salmon fishing season opens. Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter or Instagram to watch the sea-to-table journey of this year’s first freshly caught Cooper River salmon.

Every year in mid-May, the salmon return to the Copper River’s icy, pristine waters. The rugged landscape creates an environment perfectly suited for Copper River Salmon to develop their renowned flavor and large reserves of heart–healthy omega-3 oil. Try our first of the season Copper River Salmon in our Sesame Ginger Alaskan Salmon Recipe.

Our Seafood Buyer made the trip to Cordova, AK to find out how Copper River Salmon make their way from sea to our seafood counter.
