Welcome to Signature Seafoods
Signature Seafoods, Inc. was established in 1996 to take advantage of new opportunities arising from the changing nature of the salmon industry. Utilizing skills and techniques developed in the Alaska ground-fish fisheries, Signature brings a new approach to salmon processing. We feature frozen at sea quality in our products, with a stable long-term supply through our unique relationship with the Southern Southeast Regional Aquaculture Association.
Our approach to fisheries is to produce value from supplies of abundant stocks while avoiding unacceptable waste of natural resources. We focus on developing markets for under-utilized, under-valued species, by delivering higher quality products and new product forms.
The “Lucky Buck” is a 180 foot floating processing plant. Each summer, the Lucky Buck is moored in Neets Bay, Alaska (about 30 miles north of Ketchikan). Salmon is harvested at a consistent level over a three- month period.
Fishing takes place within a few miles of the Lucky Buck, and the salmon are chilled then processed within a few hours. Great care is taken to handle each fish in a manner that provides the customer with the highest quality product.
The M/V Ocean Fresh is a 225 foot processing vessel, which can operate in Bristol Bay, Sitka, Juneau and Chignik, Alaska. The Ocean Fresh will be anchored off shore and will remain stationary while processing salmon.
Both operations will do primarily the same work, just in different locations.
Our primary product is currently frozen chum and pink salmon. Our products are marketed in North America, Asia and Europe. We are always looking for additional processing opportunities, with custom processing our specialty. We look forward to bringing new standards of quality to other segments of the seafood industry.
