Salmon

Fresh Oregon troll-caught Chinook is in and very good.  There has been a 40% reduction in the season due to the prior year's drought, but the catch we have is really nice.  This season won't last as long as in prior years so don't wait.

We also have a fresh supply of Copper River Sockeye and Chinook.  The Copper River is a favorite among our customers and this year's catch is bright and flavorful.  

We expect a catch of the Yukon Keta Salmon, also called Yukon Chum, about mid-June.  The season is just getting underway and the price should be good buy again this year.  This is a very flavorful, great grilling salmon.

Fresh Oregon troll-caught Chinook is magnificent on the BBQ and served with local asparagus.

Halibut

We have a good supply of halibut in the market.  We are getting the fresh Oregon halibutin occasionally as the fisherman are able to bring it in.  And, for the halibut cheek lovers, we have a pretty consistent supply of fresh halibut cheeks in the market.  There are so many ways to prepare this versatile firm white fish.  It is great on the BBQ and also good baked in the oven.

Sole, Cod, and Rockfish

Petrale Sole should continue to show up on a regular basis for the short-term future. The catch has been pretty consistent to date. This will potentially be affected if weather systems keep the boats off the water.

Also, high quality, fileted-by-hand, hook and line Rockfish, Ling Cod, and Black Cod are plentiful. The texture and appearance of trolling, hook and line caught fish is superior to trawl (net) caught.  The quality is firmer and the flavor tends to be slightly sweeter and milder.
