2018 Quality Campaign

With a bigger scope and a greater reach, we are continuing outreach to the fleet to produce the highest quality Bristol Bay Sockeye. Find our messaging in this year’s Captn. Jack’s Tide & Current Almanac!


Premium Fish for a Premium Brand

Our brand image, Wild Taste, Amazing Place, is built on the fishing grounds and our brand promise must be supported by a premium product if we are to secure long term customer loyalty.

The ability to drive up the demand for Bristol Bay Sockeye, Alaska's Sockeye Salmon, hinges upon our members' commitment to delivering the highest quality sockeye at every offload. 

Every Bristol Bay fisherman is an ambassador of the Bristol Bay sockeye brand; it is your brand - and catching, handling and delivering in a way that ensures quality, not only elevates the brand but also reflects the pride Bristol Bay fishermen take in participating in this remarkable, sustainable fishery.

So what can you do to improve the quality of your product? Follow these simple steps....
