About Half Moon Bay Fisheries LLC and "KodiakCatch"
family-operated wild salmon setnet fishing operation located in Viekoda Bay, Kodiak, Alaska. I have salmon fished since 1977. We own 2 permits. We sell to our cannery, Ocean Beauty Seafoods. We harvest sockeye, coho, chum, and pink salmon between June 1st through end of season, usually mid September. We sell a quality product, we bleed and chill the salmon immediately, in 34 degree seawater in our holding skiff. I also market our wild salmon in Northern California during the winter at the Arcata Farmers Market and local health food grocery stores, smoked or frozen filets.
