    Subject: The Plitt Company's Copper River update! Date: Tue, 11 Jul 2006 10:41:41 -0700 Enjoy some of the Plitt Company’s last shipments of impeccably fresh
    Copper River sockeye salmon while you can!

    Word from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is that this year’s
    run
    is declining, and the season is winding down…ADFG moves into what they
    call a “conservative management approach” to make sure they hit
    recovery
    numbers for the season, and that means less fish hitting the market.

    The Plitt Company has beautiful sockeye in the house. This fish is
    shipped to us directly from our team in Cordova – Mike Poole and his
    sons
    Ashton and Micah. We can assure you this is the best fish on the
    market!
    Mike and the boys head out to each opener on boats designed to maximize
    the quality of the end product. The boats are small and agile, so that
    our team can work their gill nets quickly and efficiently to pull
    salmon
    from the nets while they are still alive. This is a key factor in
    providing you with the best fish we can. The fish are bled out while
    they
    are still alive, assuring maximum quality and improved shelf life.
    The
    Poole’s work three of the few boats that are certified to process
    salmon
    on board – salmon is headed and gutted as quickly as possible before
    its
    iced; another step in maintaining excellent quality. Plenty of ice
    along the way maintains quality until this fish arrives in our coolers.

    As soon as each opener wraps up, the Pooles motor back to Cordova to
    off
    load their salmon and get it to the airport. Not every Copper River
    fisherman is doing this. Often, when the openers are announced in
    close
    succession, fishermen will stay out on the water and wait it out
    between
    openers. Coming back to port each time is expensive – especially with
    the
    cost of gas this summer. Staying out on the water might save the
    fishermen money, but it means the fish is that much older; and
    declining
    in quality every moment… The Poole’s bring our fish back after each
    opener. Sure, it’s a bit more expensive, but you can count on the
    quality
    of Plitt’s product – and increased shelf life means better yield and
    more
    savings in the long run.

    We’re incredibly privileged to be able to offer you such tremendous
    product, direct from some of the purest waters on earth! We encourage
    you
    to take advantage of our Copper River sockeye while it’s fresh this
    season, and support our hard working team in Cordova! There isn’t a
    more
    delicious way to support sustainable seafood!
