Salmon has a high oil content and therefore has a fairly strong flavor profile. The larger fish have more fat which adds a buttery flavor and texture to the fish.
The Oregon season can open as early as March 15th, although recently the season has started on April 1st. It typically continues through October.
The dominant commercial salmon species in Oregon is Chinook Salmon (aka King Salmon). We usually sell Alaskan Coho salmon during the off-season. All our Alaskan Coho is harvested by Don Snow on the FV Summerplace, a local Newport boat that fishes in Alaska during the summer.
