Alaska Home Pack

Alaska Home Pack is great for people who are committed to eating only sustainable seafood caught in season. It’s also great for people who like to experiment with their food choices. That’s because rather than offering an a la carte menu, Alaska Home Pack bundles their seafood products into preselected boxes based on seasonal availability. The whole concept behind this company is that you’re getting the same “home pack” that these fishermen are taking back to their own families. This creates the freshest, sustainably caught seafood available on a year-round basis. So long as you can eat and enjoy everything they send in their Home Pack, you’re sure to enjoy some of the best and best-priced seafood available each and every month.

There is a huge variety of seafood that comes out of Alaskan fishing waters, but it also means lots and lots of salmon. Many months customers can choose between their salmon-only box and the featured box with a selection of wild seafood. Of course, you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can do both. You can also choose a monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly delivery schedule. Regardless, this company is a reliable source of wild Alaskan seafood delivered straight to your doorstep.

Shipping

As fresh as the seafood is, it still has to be flash-frozen to lock in the freshness and flavor while it’s shipped to your location. To reduce these shipping costs without sacrificing quality, Alaska Home Pack ships out their home packs once a month via FedEx Next-Day or 2-day Shipping. Orders ship on the second Monday of the month and typically arrive on Wednesdays. You will receive an email notification with your tracking number. You can sign up for alerts, the fish will stay frozen for up to 12 hours after delivery.

Quality and Sustainability

This is a large-scale seafood sourcing and processing company that’s also among the industry leaders in emulating the feel of the smaller-scale fishermen-direct businesses. For example, while they process and handle more than 10 million pounds of wild Alaskan seafood each year, their trace registry means their customers know exactly who and when their seafood was caught. They’ve also done an admirable job in leveraging the size of their operations into a comprehensive approach to sustainability. More than just following the regulations and best practices of sustainably-caught seafood, Alaska Home Pack works to recover and use 98% of the seafood they process. They also have a recycling program with pre-paid mailing labels that make it easy to recycle their boxes and shipping materials.
