Salmon lovers, this box was made for you! A mix of Alaska coho, keta, and Bristol Bay sockeye, the Salmon Sampler gives you the opportunity to taste three varieties of one magnificent fish, which is the inspiration for our company name!
The ~4.5-lb Salmon Sampler includes our traditional artisan cuts that highlight the natural lines and beauty of the fish. Although salmon shines when roasted with a simple olive oil drizzle or even sashimi-style in a vibrant poke bowl, the following recipes will highlight each fish’s nuanced flavors and textures. Don’t forget to let us know which is your favorite!
As always, our fish is blast-frozen — which locks in the fresh-from-the-ocean flavor — and traceable to the source.
Limited inventory. Available until sold out.

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!

“You guys have really made it easy to do my husband's holiday gifts for the past three years. I am very grateful for everyone at Sitka Salmon Shares from your customer service team to the leadership team and all the fishermen, processors, and shipping crews that work behind the scenes to provide us with such wonderful fish.”

“We just got our shipment today. King salmon was on the menu tonight and it was fantastic! I was on the fence about signing up a few months ago, but so glad I did. EVERYTHING we've had is the best ever. Plus, we feel good about supporting small family fishermen (and women) who catch these fish in an ethical manner. I love seeing which fishing vessel caught my dinner.”

“I love the convenience of having quality salmon that is caught responsibly delivered to my door. This month’s delivery was coho salmon and I cooked it last night topped with homemade chimichurri. The texture and flavor of coho is perfect… simply delicious!”

“You came highly recommended from my husband’s colleague. I was a bit hesitant as my confidence in preparing seafood was lacking. I ended up taking the plunge and gifting this to my husband for our anniversary. We are completely hooked (pun intended). I’m trying fish I’ve never even heard of. My husband loves to prepare it (total bonus). We are grateful for the tips, recipes, and community we found here. It’s been a lot of fun for he and I to learn together. We’ve recommended it now too!”
