Alaska Keta Salmon

Oncorhynchus keta

The mild flavor, delicate texture, and attractive orange-pink color of wild Alaska keta salmon makes this fish exceptionally versatile and overwhelmingly popular. Keta salmon also has a lower fat content than other salmon varieties, so it works wonderfully in a wide range of recipes and menus designed to meet specific nutritional goals.

Benefits and Nutrition

Alaska keta salmon is packed with 22g of complete protein and 683g of healthy marine-derived omega-3 fatty acids in just one 3-ounce portion. The same serving also provides niacin, selenium, and more than the daily value of vitamin B-12.

Salmon Fishing


In Alaska, sustainability is written into the state constitution. It states that fish are to be ‘utilized, developed, and maintained on the sustainable yield principle,’ ensuring wild keta salmon inhabit Alaska waters for generations to come. As a wild resource, the number of salmon that return to freshwater to spawn changes from year to year. Managers in Alaska use the best science available to set ‘escapement goals,’ which allow enough fish to return to the spawning grounds to reproduce. Biologists account for natural fluctuations in returns of salmon by managing the fisheries in-season to safeguard the sustainability of Alaska’s wild keta salmon. Alaska salmon is also certified by both the Marine Stewardship Council and the Responsible Seafood Management Program.
