Be sure to note fillets and/or portions AND what location you will meet in an email to us, or simply pre-order here on our website. We will be confirming all pre-orders via email shortly. For all other Stock-Ups, pre-orders online are not necessary… we’ll have our full freezer-trailer for you to simply show up and “shop.”

+Cash or check are preferred for purchase or any remaining balance due if you have already paid a deposit. We also can accept card, but Square will charge a 3% fee. 

+Coordinate with friends and neighbors and buy 50 lbs or more to save $0.25/lb. We can separate 50 lb orders into halves or thirds but will accept one payment only, please.

p r o d u c t p r i c i n g; As previously announced, we will have bulk-shares of both wild Alaskan Sockeye AND King (boneless, bled, fresh-flash frozen…” the good stuff”), and a robust a la carte selection of our own artisan provisions, including three varieties of smoked salmon, smoked salmon spread, salmon jerky, and cedar planks for grilling. Due to world market supply and demand, prices will vary from year to year, but we promise to offer the lowest and fairest, direct price-per-pound possible:

The ability to share our work on the ocean and its wild abundance with you back at home is such an honor. Thank you for being a part of our story! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. Otherwise, see you soon at your nearest Stock-Up, and until then…stay wild! With gratitude, Kara + Capt. Taran Fishermen and Co-Owners


Eating Wild Alaskan salmon makes us feel healthy, happy, and strong! We harness the abundance from our summer’s wild harvest to sustainably fuel our greater community with beautiful, wild, nourishing superfood to be enjoyed year-round. Aboard our fishing boat, F/V Thunder, we commercially fish June through August in Bristol Bay, Alaska and bring back a portion of our summer catch to share with our local communities here in the Inland Northwest. When we aren’t fishing, we live in Sandpoint, ID where we own and operate our business – sharing our Alaska salmon fillets and creating locally value-added artisan smoked products and salmon provisions that are always 100% natural.
