Collection: Thunder's Catch Wild Salmon

WILD

More important and vital to our livelihood than the fish that we catch, are the fish that we don't catch.

Each summer, the pulsing tides in Bristol Bay, Alaska throb with wild salmon migrating upstream to spawn. From the open ocean, they churn upriver, and with an innate instinct, they swim even farther into the very lake from which they were born to lay their own eggs – completing the natural life cycle that is so beautiful and unique to wild salmon, and the ecosystem as a whole.

SUSTAINABLE

Sustainability in seafood means that a fishery can exist for the long-haul without over-fishing, habitat damage, pollution, or any other compromise to the other marine plants and animals, nor the environment and ecosystem as a whole.

  • If it’s Alaskan, it’s sustainable: Fortunately, all Alaskan seafood is certified sustainable thanks to mandated programs that have been strictly monitored and rigidly enforced by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.

  • Good governance: When Alaska became a state in 1959, Alaskans wrote sustainability into their Constitution – a promise ensuring that all Alaskan fisheries are sustainably managed. In Bristol Bay, Alaska, the past few years have seen record-breaking runs of sockeye salmon – testament to the resources, science-based research, and rules that all enforce sustainability.

TRACEABLE

Traceability is how restaurants, supermarkets, and direct consumers know that the Alaskan seafood they are purchasing is sustainable. It’s the ability to follow the movement of a fish through specified stages of harvest, processing, and distribution – even traceable to the gear type used and standards of quality that were upheld during harvest.

Thunder’s Catch wild Alaskan Sockeye and King Salmon, sold to our devoted customers at the farmers’ markets, grocery stores, and restaurants know that our Wild Alaskan Sockeye and King salmon are MSC Certified Sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. We deliver a traceable product in a condition that most closely resembles the salmon as they first come out of the water. Unlike many of our competition’s fishing boats, our fishing fleet chills the fish at the point of harvest. We use temperature probes in our fish holds. We float and bleed our fish onboard. We use mats and salmon slides to prevent bruising, and we aim to offer the highest quality salmon possible.
