Many of the world’s wild salmon stocks are depleted due to overfishing, habitat damage, or pollution. Alaska is the only state in the nation with a constitutional mandate that all fish be managed sustainably and commercial fishing is strictly regulated to preserve the populations.
Salmon are a keystone species to Alaska’s ecosystems. Wild salmon impressively return to the exact river they were born in – after traveling thousands of miles and spending 2-5 years at sea. This lifecycle allows Alaska’s wild salmon to be harvested at the tail-end of their life – allowing them to contribute to their role in the food chain along with orcas, seals, and other fish to help maintain a balanced, sustainable, and diverse ecosystem.
The Marine Stewardship Council certifies all of the 5 species of wild Alaskan salmon as sustainable. Salmon skins are often tossed in landfills or dumped to rot away on the ocean floor. Tidal Vision proudly reduces waste while sourcing salmon skins from certified sustainable Alaska fisheries.
