Alaska Seafood


Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) is a public-private partnership between the State of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry, established to foster economic development. ASMI functions as a brand manager of the Alaska Seafood family of brands in 21 countries. Alaska’s 34,000-mile coastline is home to wild, natural and sustainable seafood such as salmon, pollock, yellowfin sole and black cod which swim free in the icy Pacific Ocean. The freedom to live and swim wild and the fish’s natural diet creates a superior meatier taste and texture without any artificial colouring, preservatives, pesticides, or GMOs. Wild Alaska Seafood is a key source of marine omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) – which are essential for our bodies to promote heart health, suppress inflammatory responses, improve blood flow, and participate in brain function.
