Local Wild Alaskan Salmon Co-Op
Sep 30, 2016 10:43PM
Kwee-Jack Fish Co., a brother-sister enterprise that brings sustainably harvested, fisherman-direct wild sockeye salmon from Alaska, is introducing 10-pound half-shares for new co-op members in October, while shares last. Pick-up takes place by appointment at 137 North Duke Street, in downtown Lancaster, during weekday business hours.
With a mission to provide a personal connection between the fisherman and the local community, Joe fishes seasonally in the Kvichak River region of Bristol Bay in Alaska, and Anna coordinates local co-op events to deliver the harvest to those who seek to source wild salmon from an ethically managed fishery.
Orders for 20-pound salmon shares are accepted annually online in the spring, salmon is harvested each summer and shares are distributed in the fall at local co-op pick-up events. A limited number of 10-pound half-shares are currently available to provide new co-op members a chance to enjoy the salmon before committing in the spring to full shares.
Through bulk quantities and efficient logistics, Kwee-Jack Fish Co. aims to make professionally-processed, sushi-grade, boneless, individually frozen-fresh filets of wild Alaskan salmon accessible throughout the year for the delicious nutrition it provides.
