Everyone knows that Alaska is a seafood haven. Our waters yield some of the best, highest-quality fish available worldwide. From salmon and king crab to halibut and oysters, our state has built its reputation on catching some truly marvelous seafood. That quality exists for a reason.
Our state is thousands of miles away from the large sources of pollution that contaminate food supplies in other parts of the ocean. Additionally, Alaska’s human population density is among the lowest in the world, meaning we have minimal local pollution and strict regulations governing development activities. We are the only state in the nation whose constitution explicitly mandates that all fish are utilized, developed, and maintained on a sustained yield principle, and the State’s Department of Environmental Conservation has a regulatory section dedicated to water quality.
As a result of these initiatives and circumstances, our coasts and fisheries have some of the cleanest, freshest water sources available. The quality is so high that you can actually taste the difference.
Alaskan seafood is shipped around the world for popular consumption, but a lot of customers don’t quite know what to do with their orders. Our state’s seafood is always high quality, so it tastes slightly different from what you might pick up at your local grocery store. As a result, people might not know how to cook this fish in a way that brings out the best flavors. That’s where we come in.
Symphony of Seafood is a website devoted to enjoying – and helping others enjoy – Alaska’s bountiful seafood. We primarily post recipes and cooking tips for preparing Alaskan seafood. However, we will occasionally spotlight companies and fisheries that are either producing an excellent product or working noticeably sustainably.
Alaska has some of the best seafood in the world, and we want everyone to enjoy its unique taste. It really does make a difference where your seafood comes from. Welcome to Symphony of Seafood.
