BCSMC Sponsored Menu Item: Organic Ocean Northern Coho Wild BC Salmon
These Northern BC Coho are harvested by hook-and-line in the Haida Gwaii ("islands on the edge of the world"), a remote archipelago located on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia between Vancouver Island and the State of Alaska. This fishery occurs from July through September as the Coho salmon complete the final leg of their three-year life cycle. Often weighing in at four or more kilograms, the large Northern Coho feed on herring, pilchards, squid, and crustaceans that provide for a firm, fine-textured and full-flavoured vibrant red-orange flesh that chefs covet for grilling and broiling.
