Alaska is home to five wild species of salmon: king, coho, sockeye, keta and pink, all of which are sustainably harvested to the highest global standards. Alaska Wild Salmon Day is a reminder of the importance to #AskForAlaska or look for “Alaska” on packaging and signage whenever choosing salmon to guarantee it is wild and sustainable.
