Matt Marinkovich, commercial fisherman. Catching fish for YOU!

Matt Marinkovich gillnets for salmon out of Friday Harbor, WA.
He sells his catch locally on San Juan and Orcas Island.

He catches sockeye, pink, chinook (king), coho (silver), and keta (chum) salmon. Every fish is bled and iced immediately, then dressed and packed in ice shortly after. Matt fishes close to home so the fish are usually available within hours of being caught.

To be notified when the next batch of fish is available,
join the Fish List and we'll send an email when the fish are in!
(Be sure to select between the San Juan, Orcas, or Seattle lists)

Wild Salmon are sacred, the Get Out Migration

We cannot match the corporate Norwegian fish farm PR machine, nor their lobbying power. So we are simply inviting people worldwide to make our rejection of this destructive industry visible to the world by joining us on foot, electronically and by mail. This will be a peaceful, colourful, musical, fun, family-oriented act of humanity to preserve a fish that feeds our world – wild salmon. Unless we all stand up our fish will continuing dying of politics that no longer serve the people, nor our living world.

Sea Lice Video by Georgia Strait Alliance--Very Good

Sea lice on a salmon smolt. Sea lice naturally occur on wild adult salmon but die as soon as the adult salmon swim up stream into fresh water. Adult salmon have a natural defense against these parasites, scales; and therefore the lice are benign. Unfortunately, the salmon farms are breeding grounds for billions of sea lice. These sea lice are then easily transferred to the vulnerable young salmon as they migrate from the rivers, pass the farms on their way to open ocean. Since many of these young salmon do not have scales yet, they do not survive the sea lice infestation from the farms. This smolt is too small for sea lice; it will most likely not survive. @Carrie Vonderhaar, Ocean Futures Society/KQED
