Greetings From the Sitka Sound
Welcome to March in Sitka. We are in really high spirits these days, with the ever-increasing sunlight we have been graced with. You can’t help but feel a little lighter in step overall. Any signs of spring cause the equivalent of an internal happy dance.
Our favorite sign of spring are season openers. They get our blood pumping (just a little) and help us shake off the winter blues. We love seeing all the beautiful boats leaving their slips for the open ocean - some over a 100 years old! This year the Groundfish Longline opener occurred on March 8th! Our small boat fleet are now back at it harvesting fresh Halibut, Black Cod, Lingcod and Rockfish for us all to enjoy.
Every March, each fishing family feels the thrill of the season. Winter preparations, sometimes done begrudgingly, now have been deeply appreciated. From finding dependable and trustworthy crew, to gear repair and maintenance, each step served to get the whole family and community involved. Sitka has been buzzing with activity with, what we consider, the true beginning of the New Year! The hook & line, sustainable bounty of Southeast Alaska is in high demand and here now.
Order today, and get this Wild Alaskan Seafood harvest on your doorstep!

Fish Talk: Women In Seafood
Happy Women’s History Month! In honor of women, for this month’s Fish Talk, we explored the ways women are a living, breathing, vibrant part of the great tapestry of seafood. A crucial component of the industry, women hold many of the vital roles that help bring the treasures from the ocean to your plate. Currently, at Catch Sitka Seafoods, 75% of our staff are women as is our COO, and co-owner, Mindy!

Did you know? In 2005, the American Heart Association recommended that we should “eat more fish, especially oily fish, broiled or baked.” In 2021, they amended their recommendation to specify that the healthy unsaturated fats found in fish and seafood should be consumed twice weekly.
But, how many Americans are actually eating enough fish? Order or Subscribe today to make sure that you are getting the incredible benefits of fish caught at the height of its health in the clear, open ocean waters of Southeast Alaska, then swiftly blast frozen to sashimi grade to lock in the nutritional virtues.
