We are looking for a good source for frozen wild salmon from Alaska, Seattle area or thereabouts. Does anyone have a source that they have used and are pleased with?

    Have been pleased with the salmon from this site. Try the Coho:

        Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. Fishex had only chunks (I wanted fillets or sides) and Kasilof didn't answer my telephone message and my email bounced back.
        In the end I found and ordered filets from www.alaskasalmononline.com , which arrived and are in the freezer.
        www.wildpacificsalmon.com also has filets though they show only chunks on their website.
        All mail order sources have a 5 pound minimum.

          I apologise for my math. Of course fresh frozen wild salmon is much more expensive than locally bought farmed.

            Just for the record, Fisherman's Express
            has filets of every major species
            of salmon.

              I haven't tried them yet but I have found www.lokifish.com - an appealing site of a small family firm, with wild salmon activist information that sells canned wild salmon, jerky and smoked wild salmon.

          I've had good success with:
          http://www.pristinesalmon.com
          Give them an email or call from their contact page. Very nice guys.

            Get it straight from AK -

            takusmokeries.com - not just their fresh salmon but have some of their smoked too.
