May 16, 2014

Pacific Seafood’s First of Season Copper River Sockeye Salmon Arrives in Fred Meyer Stores in Oregon and Washington This Weekend

PORTLAND, Ore. – May 16, 2014 – First of Season Copper River Sockeye Salmon arrived in various Washington Fred Meyer stores today and will be arriving in selected Oregon Fred Meyer stores by noon tomorrow, Saturday, May 17. Pacific Seafood is proud to be able to supply Fred Meyer stores with this highly anticipated Copper River wild salmon just hours after Thursday’s season opener. These Sockeye come from one of Alaska’s most rugged rivers fed melted snow and heavy rainfall and is one of Alaska’s most well managed, sustainable fisheries. “Pacific Seafood is committed to the stewardship of a sustainable resource and fully supports responsible management practices,” said president and CEO of Pacific Seafood, Frank Dulcich.

The following Oregon and Washington Fred Meyer locations that are or will be carrying the salmon:

  • Oregon: W. Hollywood; Burlingame; Hawthorne; Sunset; Tualatin; Wilsonville
  • Washington: Federal Way; Greenwood; Ballard; Redmond; Issaquah

Salmon is a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids which has been shown to reduce heart disease and lower cholesterol if eaten regularly. Naturally lean, with a high oil content, makes it perfect for a variety of cooking applications.
