There was a time when people knew who grew their produce, butchered their meat, and caught their seafood. Now you can once again, know your fisherman.
Wild Bay Seafood Company traces its origins back to 1997, the year we purchased the fishing vessel, “Maggie Lynn” named after our only daughter – Maggie. Located in Gig Harbor, Washington, we are a small family fishing operation with only our son and daughter on deck. Every summer we fish commercially for wild sockeye salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska, and in the fall and winter months we direct market our catch to local restaurants, specialty grocers, and residents around the greater Puget Sound and beyond.
Bristol Bay is the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery, responsibly managed by the state of Alaska to maintain sustainability. No other fishery matches the standard of sustainability set by Bristol Bay.
