Bainbridge commercial fisherman Victor Cramer is now filling orders for this year's catch of Alaskan sockeye salmon.
This Bainbridge Island family has owned a gillnet fishing boat since 1992 and the sockeye salmon is caught in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Bristol Bay is home of the largest natural sockeye salmon run in the world. It is closely managed by the State of Alaska and is a certified sustainable fishery by the Marine Stewardship Council. The fish run began in mid-June and finished toward the end of July. The sockeye salmon are immediately bled and refrigerated after being caught, processed and blast frozen in Alaska so the fish is of the highest quality. It was then shipped back to Seattle and is available now.
