Alaskan salmon

Known for its rich colour, distinctive flavour and range of textures, Alaskan canned salmon is prized as the highest quality canned salmon in the world.

Why is Alaskan salmon such high quality?

In the realm of seafood, wild Alaskan salmon is unmatched for its versatility and consumer appeal – the result of spending life swimming wild in the sea and returning to spawn in the rivers where they were hatched. Alaska’s icy, pure waters and the abundance of natural food give its salmon unparalleled flavour.

What are the varieties of Alaskan salmon?

All Alaskan seafood is wild and pure, responsibly managed for continuing abundance. Harvested in the summer at the peak of its lifecycle, Alaskan canned salmon is available in two varieties, red or pink.

What is red salmon?

Red salmon (or Sockeye) has a rich red colour, a distinctive rich flavour and a firm texture. Wild Alaska red salmon are well known for the brilliant red hue their fillets possess both raw and after canning. This is due to their natural diet of krill and plankton which possess a carotenoid pigment called astaxanthin. This powerful compound not only provides a deep colour and strong (but not fishy) flavour, but also is an antioxidant.

What is pink salmon?

Pink salmon is the smallest and shortest-lived species of Alaskan salmon, typically weighing 2-3kg and living for only 2 years. Due to their rapid reproduction, pink salmon are also the most numerous species, making them very difficult to overfish. Due to their mild flavour, pink salmon is exceptionally versatile, lending itself well to just about any recipe or preparation method. It’s easy to apply to salads, sandwiches, soups and breakfast options.


Is canned tuna good for you?

Canned tuna is among the healthiest, most affordable sources of protein you can buy. The fish is rich in anti-inflammatory, heart-protective omega-3 fatty acids. It is rich in vitamin D and low in carbs. Canned and pouch tuna is made from skipjack tuna that is caught in the Western Pacific Ocean or the Indian Ocean.

What is skipjack tuna?

As the primary species for over 70% of the canned tuna market, skipjack tuna are the most commonly canned tuna. Their meat texture is tender, allowing for small chunks, perfect for canning. The taste of skipjack is strong and is often described as “fishy.” Due to their relatively short life cycles, skipjack tunas reproduce very early (around one year old). This means that when they are caught, it’s likely that they’ve already spawned at least once in their lives. As a result of their high frequency of reproduction, skipjacks are an abundant species, with no foreseeable risk to their stocks.

What can you cook with canned tuna?

This is a versatile product that can be used in a wide range of recipes like:

  • Mediterranean tuna pasta
  • Avocado and tuna salad
  • Tuna and tomato pasta
  • Asian tuna salad
  • Tuna sandwiches
  • Tuna fish cakes/patties

Tuna is also available in vacuum packed tuna portions ideal for throwing on a BBQ.
