Sustainable Business Center Welcomes Sitka Salmon Shares

May 8, 2012 03:20 PM
The Sustainable Business Center is very pleased to announce that Sitka Salmon Shares is the fourth tenant to be admitted into the business incubator. Sustainability Director, Eric Dilts, says "Being both environmentally- and socially-conscience, the five employees of Sitka Salmon Shares will focus on bringing sustainable seafood to the Midwest. We are thrilled to have Sitka Salmon Shares as our newest tenant, and we look forward to assisting them in growing their business."
As more of the world's seafood comes from farmed sources or are caught with large damaging nets, the quality of salmon is diminished. Sitka Salmon Shares does salmon differently. They focus on connecting fishermen and consumers to support artisan fishers while delivering high-quality, wild Alaskan salmon to the Midwest. Sitka Salmon Shares only works with small boat fishermen who use low-impact fishing methods and carefully handle each salmon to ensure the highest quality product. Bypassing the middleman means these fishermen receive fair prices and you receive wild Alaskan salmon from a transparent food chain.
Vacuum sealed and blast frozen king, coho, and sockeye salmon will be sold in shares. Shareholders will receive several deliveries of salmon over the course of the summer which is Alaska's salmon fishing season. There are a variety of share sizes available and each share consists of blast frozen salmon fillets cut into 1-pound portions. Shares can be purchased through existing CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), by joining a Community Supported Fishery, or directly from Sitka Salmon Shares' website.
Sitka Salmon Share's Community Supported Fishery program is the first of its kind connecting the Midwest to Southeast Alaska. The West-Central Illinois Community Supported Fishery will deliver salmon to the Quad Cities, Peoria, and Galesburg. To join this sustainable food chain, sign up on the Sitka Salmon Shares website at
Helen Schnoes of Sitka Salmon Shares says "We're excited to establish our headquarters at the Sustainable Business Center because it shares a vision with us of transforming business to be more sustainable and supporting independent businesses in ways that promote local communities." Through their shared vision the Sustainable Business Center and Sitka Salmon Shares will work to bring healthy, sustainable food to Galesburg and the Midwest.
