Reshipment - Copper River Sockeye Box - Sustainer's Only
Carving a path for 300 miles through the wilderness of southcentral Alaska, the Copper River is a pristine, untouched watershed — and one of the best remaining salmon habitats in the world. It produces some of the most spectacular salmon you’ll ever eat.
Why are these salmon so special? The answer has everything to do with the river.
To prepare for their 300-mile journey upstream to the rugged Chugach and Wrangell mountain headwaters, these salmon layer extra fat to use as fuel on their journey. This extra bit of richness in their meat translates to a mouthwatering flavor that elevates Copper River sockeye salmon to a level of its own.
Take a peek at our Seafood Cooking Guide for more information on salmon preparation and the reason why we leave the salmon bones in.

What is “the Freezer”?
Although we try our best to forecast exactly how much of a season’s harvest to purchase from our small-boat fishermen, the community supported fishery model has some natural variability to it. It’s both an art and a science to decide how much to buy and how to distribute the catch as evenly as possible among share members. More important and ultimately, species availability is dependent on the health of the fisheries themselves.
When we have a surplus of delicious premium quality seafood after the season’s 4- to 5-pound share boxes are packed, we “stock” the Freezer and make its bounty available to our members or folks who want to try before they buy shares.
We also have unique and seasonal opportunities to purchase additional seafood from our fishermen or trusted partners (but not necessarily enough for all the shares). When we do, we’ll add them to the Freezer for you to order.
Is this the same fish I get in the CSF?
Well, yes and no. The seafood in the Freezer is of the same premium quality from our fishermen or trusted partners. However, not all items in the Freezer will be available in monthly CSF shares and vice versa.
Can I just order one type of fish?
Sometimes we will offer single species boxes in the Freezer in addition to mixed species boxes. We are not currently customizing any of our Freezer boxes.
Do you offer discounts when I order more than one box?
Members enrolled in the 2021 CSF season will receive 10% off Freezer seafood boxes. This applies to ordering one or many. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become one, as access to special discounts and sales are another great membership perk!
