SO YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR OWN FISH...
...a few resources you may need
Direct Marketers are our partners. If you are direct marketing any part of your Copper River salmon catch and leveraging the Copper River salmon brand and the Alaska Seafood brand you are our partner. If you are direct marketing any part of your Prince William Sound salmon catch and leveraging the Prince William Sound brand and the Alaska Seafood brand you are our partner. Quality and reputation are imperative for our brands. Take all the care possible for both your salmon and your customers.
Consumer interest in where their food comes from is at an all time high. This plays to our strengths as a small volume wild salmon fishery. We encourage ALL direct marketers to tag their fish. Assure your customer that they are buying your fish, that you harvested, that you caught for them, with a Copper River salmon branded tag. These tags with our premium brand on them can be co-branded with your brand on the reverse side. If you are interested in this additional layer of premium branding, proof of origin, and traceability measure please contact the office.
All association support offered to the seafood industry is also available to you as a purveyor of the Copper River and Prince William Salmon. Please see Industry Resources page for more information.
