Enjoy these salmon belly strips (we love them as snacks!) available regular or smoked from either king or silver salmon. These strips are cut from the most flavorful part of the salmon, the belly. Anyone who knows salmon will tell you that this is the choicest cut for smoking purposes - plus it contains loads of heart healthy Omega-3 oils.
You get 4 strips in each package for a total weight of approximately 0.85-1 pounds per package.
I pin bone by hand, but on occasion may miss 1 or 2. Keep frozen at 0 or below, then thaw under refrigeration until ready to cook.
Every order is packed in insulated, eco-friendly boxes with liners, air cushions and more than 5 lbs. of dry ice to keep every item continuously frozen until it arrives at your door the next day. And if you’re not at home when FedEx swings by, it’ll stay frozen for up to 30 hours (or until you arrive home from work).
The product(s) inside will be in a chilled state. If you're planning to enjoy your seafood within the same day, then place it in the fridge. If you'd like to hold off a few days before eating, keep the products in the freezer until you're ready to dig in.
Please note: Our packages contain dry ice, so do not touch it with your bare hands to avoid risk of burning.
Please note: we ship Tuesday and Wednesday out of Ketchikan, Alaska FedEx next-day delivery to anywhere in the US. If you would like your order shipped to Hawaii there is a $35 surcharge. Please call 513-512-5946 for questions or assistance.

It all started when I left my little hometown in Central Illinois. I went to visit my oldest daughter in Sitka Alaska where she was stationed with the United States Coast Guard.
This is when I fell in love with the state of Alaska! The moment I discovered the quiet little island of Baranof it felt like home.
After my visit, I went back home to Illinois and packed a couple of bags and my best friend "Meaty”, my adorable and loving pug. We left the Continental United States for an unknown adventure
While enjoying the Alaskan life and the amazing views I had every day, I met a man with a boat. Along with this man his 53’ power troller the "Velvet” I fell in love. In love with the Ocean, and the freedom of being a fisherman. Fisherwoman? Fisherperson? You get the idea.
The life I experienced in those 4 years of living on the boat (Yes, I lived on this tiny boat) and living and breathing fishing. I found a peace I had not felt in forever. The captain on the Velvet taught me everything about fishing, I learned how to take care of each species we caught, to make sure it was "perfect”.
When offloading our catch to the processing plants is where I learned that our fish was never treated any different than anyone else’s. I watched other fishermen handle their product and yet some treated their catch like we did others just seemed not to care as much.
After a year of learning, I started to sell our catch to local markets in Ketchikan and Washington and shipping into Boston and Chicago. I felt I had something in front of me that needed to be seen by so many more fish lovers. While out to sea I grew my fins as the local Ketchikan Mermaid, after much thought I put my sea legs away and opened "Fish From Trish”. A local Ketchikan processing plant to help other fishermen like us put their fish out to select markets.
I am called too picky at times when hand-selecting my product now from other boats. I had to turn into the fish retailer and wholesaler and not spend my time at sea fishing.
The best part of my job is to listen to the fisherman and their stories of catching and what they saw. I always ask "what was the best thing you saw while you were gone?” I love to hear their stories, it’s always about the big one that got away. They know I miss being out there, but I’m here to help them now.
The next best thing is hearing from my customers. To listening and seeing how Fish From Trish has changed every day people like you me to love WILD Alaskan Seafood. I want you to know that I will take care of your fish lover needs, and make sure you have the best product delivered to your door, from our local fisherman here in southeast Alaska.
NEVER FARMED ONLY WILD, and shipped directly to your door.
Where do you get your fish?
After fishing for four years around certain fisherman I buy from only from the fisherman I know. Because I know how they take care of their catch. Quality starts on the boat.
Is this Wild Fish?
Yes, only Wild - never farmed! We promote a sustainable product never Farmed. I don’t believe if you have to make a fish or put chemicals in a fish you shouldn’t eat it.
When do you ship orders?
Our standard shipping is Tuesday - Wednesday. Rush order or Saturday delivery can be arranged for an additional fee.
Are fish products traceable?
Yes, you'll know who caught your dinner and who has processed it.
Do you ship to the United States?
We ship throughout Alaska and the lower 48 Continental United States and Hawaii. We ship through FedEx which will arrive at you the next day.
Are there bones in the fish?
We hand pull all pin bones out of the salmon, and normally all white fish the bones will be cut out. However, we may miss a few bones so it’s always a good idea to check.
What is the season for salmon?
There are five species of salmon, they all have a season which the trollers can fish. I normally will have stock on the ones I purchase all year.
How is the fish caught?
There are many ways to catch a fish. I buy from trollers more often than anything. There are a couple of species I get from a longliner like a halibut or black cod.
