Owners

Matt Aboussie. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado in 2007, Matt moved to Alaska for a seasonal construction job, and there was introduced to commercial fishing in Bristol Bay. There he fell in love with Alaska and all the outdoors it had to offer. Today, Matt lives in Carbondale, Colorado and runs a fishing operation in Bristol Bay in June and July, when the salmon enter the bay to spawn.

From the Owner: “I can’t tell you how proud I am to be a part of the world’s most responsibly managed fishery. It is my sincere pleasure to be able to provide you with sustainably-sourced, wild Alaskan salmon, and I hope to do it for years to come.”

 

Quality and Sustainability

Wild Alaska Direct believes in sustainability. Sockeye Salmon in Western Alaska are robust in number, and benefit from an industry leading fishery management system that yields sustainable harvests, each year.  Wild Alaska Direct does not sell overharvested species of salmon, or species that are stressed from pollution or other habitat destruction.

Their sockeye salmon is caught under the supervision Alaska’s State Fishery Management System, ensuring that no one overfishes and that the species are plentiful for generations. All Alaskan fisheries are monitored carefully for population and habitat health, and Wild Alaska Direct actively works to protect wild salmon across the North Pacific through advocacy campaigns, awareness, and education.
