National Fisherman

Summer is rapidly approaching and to mark its arrival, another farmers market reopens this weekend and the Copper River salmon fishery opens Thursday.
 
"The seafood world is abuzz right now with the beginning of the Copper River fishery," says Dannon Southall of 10th & M Seafoods. "They are going to let the fisherman start at 8 a.m. with a 12-hour opener. We are hoping to have fresh Copper River sockeye in here by midday Friday. As always, no pricing yet until nets hit the water."
 
It's not just the fresh Copper River fish filling the cases at the seafood shops either. Southall says troll-caught king salmon are coming in from Southeast Alaska and "with the nice weather we have had, the fisherman in the Gulf of Alaska have been able to get and catch some of the amazing seafood the gulf has to offer."
