About Us

Bristol Bay Alaska is home to the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the World, some 30 to 40 million salmon push for the headwaters of their spawning grounds each year.  Bristol Bay fishery is certified Sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council and the number of spawning salmon are monitored by a team of Alaskan State Biologists. To ensure Sustainability the number of salmon that travel past the fishing grounds on there way to spawn are carefully monitored and escapement goals must be met each year before fishing can begin. Other fish caught in the nets, or “by catch “are not allowed. All five species of salmon are caught each year, Sockeye, Chum, Coho, Pinks, and Chinook, Sockeye is the most abundant.

All the salmon are hand-picked from the net and held in slush ice. The Salmon are then delivered to a tender boat minimally processed and flash frozen, ensuring the freshest product possible. During that time  Kaleb would bring his seasons catch to Colorado and provide customers with premium seafood at the locals farmers Markets.

Pacific Halibut are caught almost everywhere in the Gulf of Alaska. No nets or trawls are used when fishing for halibut, eliminating “by catch” by using long lines baited with hooks every few yards. This dramatically
reduces contact with marine birds and mammals. Fish are retrieved one line at a time so that other species of fish can be unhooked and returned to the sea. Kalebs Katch is committed to bringing you Sustainable Wild Caught Alaskan Seafood at competitive prices.
