Pink Salmon

The wild pink salmon, and salmon in general, are most well known for their amazing life cycle. They live their lives (up to four years) in the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest and the North Pacific and then return to the exact place (river) of their birth to spawn and reproduce. When the young salmon hatch, they migrate thousands of miles to the ocean, where they survive on shrimp, krill, and other small fish, only to start a new life cycle. Commercially caught pinks average between 3 and 6 pounds and are typically gill-net or purse-seine harvested. Pinks have become a mainstay of many value-added retail programs because of their versatility, low cost, price stability, low oil content, and mild flavor.
