Alaska kicks off salmon grilling season with 80,000 pound shipment

Alaska Airlines has helped kick off the summer salmon grilling season by transporting 80,000 pounds of fresh Copper River salmon to Seattle.

The first flight landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 06.00h on 17 May with 20,000 pounds of fish on board, followed by another three with an additional 60,000 pounds. Alaska Air Cargo continues to work with Alaskan seafood processors, Ocean Beauty Seafoods, Trident Seafoods and Copper River Seafoods to bring the fish to Seattle and Anchorage, before it is shipped throughout the Pacific North West, US and beyond.

Alaska Air Cargo managing director Jason Berry: “Employees work round the clock to ensure Alaska Air Cargo can deliver the first catch of the coveted wild Copper River salmon from the state of Alaska to Seattle and on to points across the country within 24 hours of being caught.”

“As the salmon season gets into full swing, our team is standing by to transport fresh Alaska salmon to restaurants and consumers throughout the US.”
