The plant manages to move a lot of sockeye in a short amount of time. Note the "runway" at the bottom of the screen. It doubles as a beach!

E&E has a number of Alaskan shore-based plants and our Bristol Bay plant is Coffee Point Seafoods of Washington. Coffee Point is a cape on Egegik Bay, on the western side of the Alaskan Peninsula. The bay marks the confluence of the Egegik and King Salmon Rivers.

Most of the sockeye processed at this plant comes from beach set netters, and because the plant is right on the beach, very little time passes between the fish being caught and headed-and-gutted (H&G). This results in a higher quality fish, as time spent unprocessed is an enemy of freshness.

The final point that makes this plant unique is that the H&G fish are flown off the beach by Coastal Air. As a result, the fish quickly make their way to Anchorage, where they are flown fresh to destination all across the United States. Ask your E&E rep how you can acquire this fresh sockeye.
