Any opinions on a place called the Great Alaska Seafood Company ? i have been getting emails and mailings from them about their products.

Worth the cost ?

If you want quality a place that I can vouch for is Coal Point Seafood in Homer. http://www.welovefish.com/
She buys all my halibut. They are daily caught fish as opposed to fish that sit on a boat for days. Flash frozen the same day. She is all about purchasing quality from selected fisherman that have proven themselves to produce a quality product over the years.
Salmon, Halibut and more. The father to the Hillstrand brothers on Deadliest catch built the business with a dream to get commercial fisherman closer to the consumer.

King Salmon make the best strips
Red Salmon make the best dried fish
Silvers good for freezing and salting
Chum salmon also called dog salmon cause most people feed them to their dogs
pinks not worth wasting time on

I agree will Otterman, except....I'd would rather eat a dime bright chum rather than a silver.

I think our silver are more like your chums nice and fat our chums tend to be just blah in flavor and get mushy when frozen. We do use a few of the incidental caught ones for three day smoke then boil and dipped in Seal oil that is about the only way I can eat them.

I find the Silvers to have a strong flavor,and realy dont like to eat them at all..most people here dont either.
our Chums are real nice and rich..they have more fat than most kings do..they are not the pale meat mushy ones otterman is talking about though..I have seen those and agree..
and I realy dont like the reds that are so dry either..they make OK dry fish though...and believe it or not I have had dried/smoked Humpys that were "To Die For"...

I agree with freezing chums....yuck!, but I've eaten many of them that went from the net to the grill. I'd take a fresh, from the net chum over a fresh, from the net silver.

My preference is reds up here. Silvers are mushy and chums are just dog food...most kings are too.

We caught a King and a sheefish yesterday. The Sheefish was fanatastic. The meat on them in the summer seems softer than the one we caught yesterday.

The water is very low here too. It would take a LOT of rain to get things to normal.

As far as I know, we do not get a fall run of chums.

Sweeeet!..and yes the Sheefish are fresh from the ocean in the spring and fat..as they hang in the river all summer they get mushy and skinny.
been dry out this way and and about the only way the water will rise here anytime soon is,when the fish come in and water displacement makes it rise..hopfully soon..I have a Hankerin for some fresh King smile

My dog loves Kings too.....

I tried eatin some yesterday, and after the over abundance of cajun seasoning I put on it, burned out my tongue, it was GREAT..

But the first 5 or 6 bites were dreaded.....

I think them white kings are fishier.......
