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)

King, Sockeye, Keta, All Caught by Matt Marinkovich, Still Available!

Hello Fish Eaters!

The fishing season is over, but we have been selling our fish, frozen, vacuum-packed, with all bones removed, at Compost It AND at the San Juan Island Food Co-op.  It's the same price  at both places, but if you buy over 30-pounds from us you'll get 10% off.

Since the Co-op is closed while it is moving to it's new location next to Bakery San Juan (opening mid-January) I have stocked up with extra fish at Compost It.  Here's what is available:
  • King Salmon fillet portions (from Samish Bay): $12 per pound
  • Sockeye fillet, whole sides (caught right off San Juan Island!): $9 per pound
  • Keta Salmon (chum) fillet, whole sides (caught near Seattle): $6 per pound

This fish all has no bones, was all processed in a family-operated cold storage plant in Burlington, and is all from fish that I personally caught.  It's all REAL GOOD STUFF!

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

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
