Did you know?
The wild sockeye salmon, and salmon in general, are most well known for their amazing lifecycle. They live their lives (up to four years) in the cold waters of the Alaska and the North Pacific and then return to the exact place (river) of their birth to spawn and reproduce. When the young salmon hatch, they migrate thousands of miles to the ocean where they will survive on shrimp, krill and other small fish only to start a new lifecycle. A mature sockeye salmon can weigh up to 10 pounds, but fromthedocks.com handpicks the 6-8 pound fish because they are the most tender and flavorful.
