Copper River Sockeye and Memorial Day Weekend Specialties 5.26.16 May 25 2016 Posted in

Copper River salmon season just opened last week in Alaska, and we have some premium, bright red sockeyes coming in on Thursday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.  These Copper River sockeyes are caught using drift gillnets and will be available through September, but don’t let that stop you from picking some up this weekend.  There’s nothing like the first of the season!

Please note, we’ll be open normal hours this weekend and on Monday.  Check out the list below and stock up some great seafood for the holiday weekend!
