These premium Sockeye Salmon were individually harvested in the Strait of Georgia at the mouth of the mighty Fraser River. The Fraser River is the longest river in British Columbia and the sockeye destined to the Fraser are revered for their high healthy fat content and amazing rich flavour. These beautiful fish were troll caught which means the fish were selectively harvested using individual hook and lines rather than nets and with only 2 active troll fishers on the grounds this year, they are the holy grail of Canadian Sockeye Salmon. These fish have historically been caught and sold to the export market that appreciate the best of the best, but now, you too can gain access to this highly coveted sockeye.
I was and am truly impressed with the quality, and service from this company. All of the seafood arrived in perfect condition and the very next day, from Steveston to Ottawa before we even arrived! The shipping was FREE. QUALITY of the seafood was EXCELLENT. The order placed was back at the beginning of August. Yes, the seafood is frozen and is absolutely SUPERIOR in every way even in comparison to the freshest available at the store. It is frozen shortly after catching and no one's home deep freeze can perform as IQF does. BTW, I am the daughter of a retired commercial fisherman and know what the freshest seafood tastes like! If in doubt, place a small order and you will not believe how delicious it is, and what great value it is. Next order I would like to try some of their prepared products. Prices are very fair and in fact may be more reasonable than the markets. From the BC spot prawns, halibut, all the various salmon, scallops, kelp, smoked sable fish and even the cedar planks we had were just fabulous. They also put i n a side of pink salmon as a promo!
We loved reading your review Sarah - thank you so much, we're hoping we continue to be your choice when it it's time to restock your freezer!
Having ordered form you before, I had high expectations that the salmon would match the quality I've come to expect. I was not disappointed, and plan to continue to order salmon and other delicacies form you.
Thanks for the kind words William, really glad you're satisfied with your salmon.
In the 1990s, I worked at a fish company plant and was able to take home seasonal fresh halibut, sockeye, etc - right off the boats unloading at the plant. The Organic Ocean troll sockeye salmon fillets remind me of exactly this - just off the boat freshness and quality. Beautiful color, firm flesh and expertly filleted. It impressed our long-time fisher family at dinner, served with a dab of creamy mustard sauce. Another Ocean Organic product which keeps us coming back.
Michele, thank you so much for sharing that bit about your life... we firmly believe in maintaining the highest standard in seafood production just as you described. Loved reading your review!
I don’t have a grill so I CAREFULLY baked this yummy fish. Truly exceptional taste and texture. Hope Organic Crean has this offer again.
Thanks for the review Sarah, you can always check back we may still have stock left... if you're lucky. ;)
As with all products I've ordered from Organic Ocean, the sockeye was outstanding. Excellent value seafood, speedy delivery, and thoughtfully packed.
Thanks for your kind words Alex, we love getting positive feedback from customers like you, hope you come back for more. ;)
This salmon fillet was truly delicious and we are glad to have ordered two. The most tender, tasty salmon in a long time!
