We first encountered Copper River Salmon last year, and I’ve been waiting for it to come back into season since! It is like salmon on crack and the season only lasts a few weeks so I want to make sure I catch it. It seems to be a bit late this year but it looks like Seattle has started getting some already, albeit in smaller quantities and higher prices. I called Salmon River Restaurant to see when they thought they would be getting it and the gentlemen told me the fishing of Copper River Salmon was banned this year and so no one would get it. I have not found any corroborating evidence of that so don’t worry yet. I’ll let you know as soon as I find it here in NYC but if you don’t want to wait for the restaurants and markets here to get it, you can order it from Alaska directly.
