If traceability is the new trend in the seafood industry, then the F/V Loki and lokifish.com are who you should learning from. Since 1980, the Loki Fish Company has been a pioneer at direct sales and private marketing techniques in the Northwest. The vessel primarily focuses on salmon trolling and gillnetting in the waters of southeast Alaska. Captain Pete Knuston also owns a Puget Sound permit for salmon fishing, which has allowed him the unique opportunity to sell fish directly from the docks at the Fishermen’s Terminal. If you have ever since the fresh salmon sign as you go over the Ballard bridge, then the Loki Fish Company has done its job. They have made quite an impression on the internet, too. Please make sure to click through and see their snazzy website at lokifish.com. A friend of mine, “East Coast Jack,” had the adventure of a lifetime as a greenhorn aboard the vessel this past summer. Its nice to see someone with so much experience is still willing to share that knowledge with fresh faces. Overall, the F/V Loki should be a model for any fishermen. The Loki Fish Company has it all, family, fish, and a future.
