Yukon River King Salmon Run on Its Way

Last year it was considered the new fish on the block; this year Yukon River king salmon is the one of the most commercially prized wild salmon catches of the year. Yukon River king salmon harvesting is expected to commence the second to third week of June, putting the tasty, rich salmon in restaurants and grocers around the middle of June.

Early, unofficial estimates indicate the commercial catch quota could be similar or even exceed last year demonstrating a healthy and sustainable fishery resource is in place. This fresh harvest of wild Yukon River king salmon is only available for about two weeks in June, sold nationwide to restaurants and retailers. The kings arrive from the Bering Sea with a very high oil content of up to 34 percent, rich in heart-healthy Omega3 fatty acids. Conversely, the majority of other Alaskan kings have less than 14 percent oil content.
