Iliamna Fish Company  is a family-owned cooperative that’s been fishing together on the Bering Sea in Bristol Bay, Alaska for four generations. They are devoted to fishing for a simple reason— they love fish. The hard work, the time with family, the salty air, and most importantly, the perfect, delicious beauty of wild, fresh fish. Because they are a fourth-generation fishing family, they are an integral part of a community, an economy, and an environment that they are committed to maintaining.

At Big Glory Bay, conditions couldn’t be more perfect for raising New Zealand King Salmon (aka Chinook) in glorious isolation. The pure waters of the bay are constantly refreshed by cold currents, keeping the temperature at a chilly 54°F. This means the salmon grow slowly and are harvested at the peak of their condition to deliver a rich, smooth flavor, with a buttery melt-in-the-mouth texture. Big Glory Bay’s “sea to service” farming and processing operations, with less fish per pen than most other salmon farms, meet the rigorous Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification standards. They have also been awarded a green “best choice” rating from Seafood Watch at Monterey Bay Aquarium.
