Featured menu specials at Miners Landing at Pier 57 and The Crab Pot in Bellevue highlight the importance of responsible sourcing with sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay.

Millions of salmon call Bristol Bay in Alaska home. Due to a commitment to sustainable fishing practices, these numbers have not faltered, even with Bristol Bay becoming home to one of the largest commercial wild salmon fisheries in the world.
