Mission Statement

Northwest Natural Foods will provide nutritious and tasty seafood at a reasonable price, using Alaskan wild salmon and halibut, and quality, local, organic ingredients when available. We will use fish that come from sustainable fisheries only.

Our fishing heritage extends far into the past. Lee’s grandfather worked in a cannery on Orcas Island, WA, where Lee was born and raised. Gene’s father was a fisheries biologist on the Columbia River and included Gene as much as possible in his work for sustainable fisheries and healthy fish runs.

Our love of fish, healthy food, cooking, and a desire to provide Alaskan wild fish to American consumers has brought us together.

Our goals are:

  • To provide flavorful, nutritious food to American consumers.
  • To protect wild salmon and halibut from over-fishing and to protect their ecosystems through consumer awareness and advocacy.
  • To use 1% of net profits to enhance wild salmon and halibut habitats and ecosystems.

We are proud supporters of:

  • Fair trade for Alaska commercial fishers
  • Sustainable fisheries
  • Protection of the Bristol Bay watershed
  • Salmon Nation @ Ecotrust
  • Alaska Independent Fishermen’s Marketing Association
  • Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association

We donate 1% of net profit to the protection of Wild Salmon.
