Alaskan Coho Salmon
The frozen Alaskan Coho salmon is known by many as the silver salmon or silvers. It is reddish-orange in color. It has a high nutritional content of Omega- fatty acids and is very healthy for the heart. It encourages cardio vascular health, as well as good muscle development. It has a little milder savor when compared to the Chinooks and Atlantic salmon species. Only spring chinook and sockeye salmon have higher levels of fat in their meat. Coho salmon are the backbone of the Alaskan troll fishery; however, the majority are caught by the net fishery (gillnet and seine). Coho salmon average 3.5% by fish and 5.9% by weight of the annual Alaska salmon harvest.
In North America, Coho salmon is used as a game fish in fresh and salt water. The period exists from July to December. It is one of the most famous sport fish in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada. Its habit of schooling in relatively shallow water, and often near beaches, makes it accessible to anglers on the banks, as well as in boats.

How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
