About us

The Hatchery was established in 1976 by the State of Alaska and reached its peak in the late 1980’s, producing more than 15 million juvenile red salmon a year! Although the Big Lake Fish Hatchery was part of a thriving statewide network of hatcheries, lack of funding forced its closure in 1993. 

The facility is now under the control of Fort Alaska Company and today the fish are gone, but the Fort lives on providing more than just Wild Salmon; the Fort is one of the world’s last outposts of pure and pristine foods dedicated to providing only the finest pure, wholesome, and wild products including wild salmon and sea-foods and natural Alaskan grown and harvested foods.

Our products are from reliable Alaskan, Canadian, and Washington impeccable sources offering only the finest natural, tested, and trusted products.
