Salmon – Alaska (Sake, Ikura)
Salmon caught from Alaska will be one of five species: Pink, Sockeye, Chum, Coho and Chinook (King) Salmon.
Abundance of salmon, particularly Pink and Sockeye, is high in Alaska due to good management and healthy habitat.
The majority of salmon is caught with purse seines, followed by gillnets and troll gear. These fishing methods cause little habitat damage and result in moderate levels of bycatch, typically other fish.
This fish may have high levels of PCBs that could pose a health risk to adults and children. More contaminant info here.
