Contains shellfish. Flash-Frozen is the New Fresh: Much of our seafood comes to you frozen, which means you can enjoy seasonally harvested fish and shellfish any time of the year. Freezing fish rapidly and within hours of catch locks in flavor and freshness, giving us straight-from-the-sea taste without the risk of spoiling. Major advances in rapid-freeze technologies mean seafood can be frozen solid in a matter of seconds, which minimizes damage to cell walls, preserving taste, texture, and moisture levels. The process of freezing seafood has evolved to the point where frozen fish is comparable to—if not better than—fresh. In fact, consumer taste-tests conducted by Oregon State University consistently put frozen seafood on top. Alaska Seafood is Sustainable Seafood: With more than three million lakes, more than 12,000 rivers, and more coastline than the rest of the U. S. put together, Alaskan waters produce some of the planet’s most pure, nutrient-dense seafood. Serving as a model for effective fishery management around the globe, Alaska is the only state in the nation whose constitution mandates that all fisheries be responsibly managed to support continued abundance. And because fish farming is prohibited in Alaska, you can always be certain Alaskan seafood is wild.
