The Copper Valley Fish Collective is run by our friends, Ben and Micah. They live in east Anchorage in the Airport Heights neighborhood. In the summer, Ben runs a small gill-net boat in Prince William Sound (based out of Cordova) and Micah runs the business of the business. Ben and Micah began the company "so they could sell their fish directly to consumers. Gillnet fishing at the mouth of the Copper River and in the heart of Prince William Sound is a small-scale endeavor where boats with 1-2 crew pick each fish out of the net by hand. They wanted the fish to be sold in a way that honors this "hand-scale" process. Their goal is not to maximize production; rather, to produce sustainable, small-scale, high quality salmon."
