Pacific West coast Salmon are fished off the coast of Vancouver islands and caught by boats with hooks and line. The practice used to catch these succulent fish is as traditional as it is sustainable. The use of multiple hooks staggered on a line ensures that the fish caught stays alive in the water until the line is pulled on the boat. The Salmon are all Whole, Gutted and Cleaned. There are 5 to 6 fish in every case. The Cases are Styrofoam and packed with Gel packs between the fish.
