King salmon is the king of the salmon, and in more than one way. While certainly the largest of the salmon (the world record was 126 lbs!), it is also considered by many to be the most delicious. The soft and flaky flesh has a pleasant mild salmon taste and a luscious rich, almost buttery, flavor. If you love king, mine is the best.
What is WHITE KING?
White king is an uncommon variety of king salmon with brilliant white flesh instead of the usual red/orange flesh. It's beautiful and many consider it the most delicious type of king salmon out there, making it a contender for the very best fish on earth!
Some seasons we catch lots of kings and some seasons we catch very few. It's a species who's numbers naturally rise and fall. If we do not catch enough king we may substitute coho (a similar taste) at a rate of 1:1.5––meaning, if you ordered 10 lbs. king and we run short, we may send you 15 pounds coho. Alternatively, we may occasionally bring in a little king from a friend to fill any shortfall.

I offer my king in several cuts:
For more information on cuts and bones, have a look here: https://salmonandsable.com/pages/bones-cuts
For convenience and to avoid confusion, I now only offer boneless king. I pull the pin bones by hand which results in a lovely and uniquely hand crafted fillet. My deboned king is generally 90-100% boneless with one or two pin bones sometimes remaining in the collar area of the fillet. The tail portion is naturally mostly or totally boneless.
I vacuum seal my salmon in heavy 5mm bags to avoid broken seals and freezer burn. virtually all other seafood is vacuum sealed in 4mm or lighter bags. Your fresh-frozen seafood will keep in your freezer in pristine condition for 12 months or more.
Although I used to offer my own kings from the Ugashik River, I now offer only troll-caught kings sourced from friends in Southeast Alaska. These fish are the best salmon available, caught one at a time by hook and line in the prime of their lives out in the open ocean.
