HOW DOES AO WORK?
We catch the fish. Our local fishermen go out to the fishing grounds and harvest a variety of fish species, using sustainable fishing methods and taking extra care to bleed and chill the fish within minutes of leaving the ocean. The fish is then processed at a Sitka-based processing facility and turned into conveniently sized, vacuum-packed frozen fillets, sealing in the freshness right at the source.
We deliver to you. We deliver our premium-quality seafood to you in one of two ways:
- Community Supported Fishery (CSF) - During the summer, we send a monthly shipment of fish to our CSF Hubs (Sitka, Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Seattle). In each city, a local program coordinator distributes fish to CSF members at a predetermined location and time.
- Home Delivery - We will ship custom orders to individuals anywhere in the US using Alaska Air Cargo or Fedex Overnight. Visit our Custom Orders page to learn more about ordering and shipping options.
We support conservation work. All Alaskans Own profits support the Fishery Conservation Network, which engages fishermen in research and conservation initiatives. With fishermen-generated ideas, we design tools that assist the fleet in mentoring other fishermen and improving fishing practices.
You enjoy nutritious Alaska seafood. As an Alaskans Own customer, you and your family get to enjoy the many benefits of having a freezer full of Alaska’s finest seafood harvested sustainably by local fishermen.
I'M HOOKED! HOW DO I JOIN?
There are two ways to join Alaskan's Own and enjoy wild Alaskan seafood:
1. JOIN OUR COMMUNITY SUPPORTED FISHERY (CSF)
Alaskans Own CSF subscribers receive a monthly share of in-season, locally-caught, frozen seafood.
2. ORDER A CUSTOM SEAFOOD ORDER
We can ship anywhere in the US! Visit our Custom Orders page to learn more.
Many of our bulk customers will bundle an order with friends & neighbors to help mitigate shipping costs. This is a good option for customers who don't live in one of our CSF cities (Sitka, Juneau, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Seattle), or for those who want a shipment of fish that is different from our predetermined CSF medley.
