Oceanic pelagic and anadromous fish, which goes up rivers to spawn after spending its entire life growing in the sea in which it lives.

Sockeye salmon is a Pacific salmon of major fishing and commercial importance, both for human consumption and for recreational fishing on lakes, which is where the populations that don’t swim downstream to the sea stay.

It is famous for the colour of its meat (intense red), which is a lot more compact than that of salmon other species.

It’s very tasty and has a firm texture that’s packed with protein and Omega 3. It has been eaten in preserves for a long time.

Demand for this variety—both fresh and frozen—has surged in recent years due to its unique qualities.

Ideal for raw fish dishes, it lends itself well to minimal-cooking methods that seal in the juices.
