Wild Sockeye Salmon are streaming into Cook Inlet and E&E Foods is maximizing the record breaking run. Based on the Upper Cook Inlet Salmon fishery as of 7/26, the ADF&G has recently revised its Sockeye forecast for Cook Inlet from 6.4 million to almost 10 million fish. E&E Foods is keeping pace with our at-sea and shoreside processing plants.

In addition to Pacific Star Seafoods, our shore-based plant in Kenai, E&E Foods has also deployed p/v Cape Greig and p/v Norton Sound to Cook Inlet. All together we have the ability to process one million lbs. of Salmon daily. To complete the sea-to-customer process, E&E Foods is using the freighter Seabird to consistently deliver finished product to distribution points in Alaska and Seattle.

With our acquisition earlier this year of the Ocean Beauty buying stations in Kenai, E&E Foods has become largest producer in Cook Inlet.
