From Arctic Shore To Your Front Door
Purchase wild Alaskan Salmon direct from an Alaskan fishing family! BEACH'M FISHERY is a small family owned setnet fishery, harvesting wild Alaskan Salmon the same way it was done over 80 years ago in the Cook Inlet Region of Alaska.
The Chase family pride themselves in being among the first fisherman in the State to adopt quality harvesting methods. Not only do they produce a consistent premium graded product for their customers, but they also work hand in hand with the Alaska Department of fish and Game to insure that the health of our salmon runs come first.
BEACH'M FISHERY was first established in the 1930's by a Finnish emigrant, Ed Lovedaul. Passing through several different owners until purchased by the Chase family in 1993. They dubbed their new venture "BEACH'M" in honor of all their names...

The secret to Alaska's success lies in two basic principles:
* Responsible fisheries management and sustainable fishing practices take care not to harm the fish, other marine plants and animals, nor the environment.
* Fish populations are never over fished. Over
fishing happens when too many fish are taken from the sea and there are not enough fish left to replenish the natural population.
(For more information on that see our Q & A page).
Alaska boasts having one of the world's few governments that is truly dedicated to sustainability. It's a commitment that dates all the way back to Alaska becoming a state in 1959, when Alaskans wrote sustainability into their Constitution - calling for all fisheries to be sustainably managed. In this way, Alaska promises to provide wild caught and sustainable seafood for generations to come.
