About California King Salmon

From dock to dish, California fishermen and the Council are dedicated to preserving this fish.

The California King Salmon is imperiled, after years of drought, but efforts to protect the population are succeeding. The king salmon harvesting season traditionally runs from May through October, although it has been shortened in recent years to help protect the Chinook salmon population born in or migrated from the Sacramento River.

California salmon harvesters treat the King with respect and care to bring you an exceptional product. Each fish is individually line-caught and cleaned on board, to ensure the freshest fish at the market. These responsible harvesting practices help ensure that the fish will continue to spawn and migrate for generations to come.

This website is brought to you by the California Salmon Council, a non-profit organization in cooperation with industry and government to actively pursue efforts to develop, maintain and expand domestic and international markets for California King Salmon and salmon products.
