Nutritional Information

Oregon's troll-caught Chinook Salmon rank among the top sources of beneficial fish oils and nutrients including iodine, calcium, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous and sodium.  

The salmon are caught by a hearty fleet of fishermen using hook and line methods to avoid damage to their prized catch. These salmon are individually harvested from the cold Pacific during their prime, while feeding on 100% natural food. Since they are ocean-caught, they retain all of their nutritional fats and oils, which will become their source of energy for the spawning run later in the year. Chinook Salmon is a primary seafood source of Omega-3s.
