What do people say about this service?
Overall, people rave about the fresh taste of Wild Alaskan Company’s fish. Members praise the convenient access to sustainably-sourced seafood, and delivery appears to be efficient and effective. “That was the best salmon I ever put in my mouth, bar none!” a reviewer wrote on Wild Alaskan Company’s website.
Negative reviews about Wild Alaskan Company are scarce online. However, one reviewer on Trustpilot complained it tasted “fishy.” “Some are not well vacuum sealed and tasted so off balance, way too fishy,” the reviewer wrote.
How does it work?
Wild Alaskan Company is a monthly membership that delivers wild-caught seafood to your home. All of the fish is sourced from sustainably-managed fisheries in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
The fish is frozen soon after it’s caught, then portioned out in individually-wrapped, 6-oz fillets. Wild Alaskan Company uses eco-friendly packaging and insulation. Dry ice keeps your order frozen until it arrives.
What does “wild-caught” mean?
Wild-caught fish are sourced from natural bodies of water like oceans and rivers. Farm-raised fish, on the other hand, come from environments that use human intervention methods to increase production, according to the FDA.
Box size and pricing options
With the monthly membership, choose between a wild salmon box, a wild combo box or a wild white fish box. The price is the same — here’s what you’ll pay:
- 12-pack: $131.88 monthly
- 24-pack: $239.76 monthly
Each month, you can also choose between a variety of seasonal add-ons. For example, in April you could add:
- Wild Alaska Pollock quick cuts (6-pack): $35
- Wild limited Sablefish (6-pack): $60
- Wild limited cold smoked sockeye (3-pack): $80
Where does Wild Alaskan Company source its fish?
Wild Alaskan sources its fish from sustainably-managed fisheries in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, according to its website. When we reached out to the team for traceability information, a representative cited a November 2019 Seafood Source article that names two suppliers: Trident Seafoods and Lummi Island Wild Co-op. It also notes its sockeye salmon comes from Bristol Bay and Lummi Island, and coho salmon comes from Southeast Alaska.
Furthermore, the team leverages founder Arron Kallenberg’s third-generation commercial fishing background to ensure quality, according to the company rep.
How does Wild Alaskan Company compare to grocery delivery?
We looked at Wild Alaskan Company compared to a grocery delivery service like Whole Foods via Amazon. Whole Foods also offers wild-caught seafood from certified-sustainable fisheries. It usually has a variety of white fish like cod and halibut and sockeye and king salmon. Wild Alaskan’s salmon, which includes sockeye and coho, costs $1.83/ounce. Whole Food’s frozen, wild-caught sockeye salmon retails for $.87/ounce online — half the price. However, you should also factor in the cost of an Amazon Prime membership, delivery fees and tip as well as local availability.

Need help in the kitchen? Here’s an easy recipe
Follow this classic oven-roasted salmon recipe from Martha Stewart for a delicious way to enjoy your fish.
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- Course salt and ground pepper
- 1 salmon fillet (2 to 3 pounds), skin on
- Chopped fresh parsley leaves for serving
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Place butter on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Place sheet in oven until butter melts, about 1 minute.
- Carefully remove sheet from oven and place salmon on top of butter, skin side down. Season fish with salt and pepper. Return sheet to oven.
- Roast until cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes, checking frequently. Salmon will flake easily when done. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
