Loki Fish Company is a family owned and operated business founded in 1979 by Pete Knutson and Hing Lau Ng. Today, Pete and our older son, Jonah, run our two boats, F/V Loki and F/V Njord, harvesting wild salmon and halibut from southeast Alaska and Puget Sound. Our younger son, Dylan, manages the business.
Our salmon are gillnet caught, handled respectfully, bled and dressed onboard, immediately chilled to below freezing in our refrigerated seawater holds, and then custom processed in Bellingham, WA to our specification.
We take pride in directly marketing every salmon that is harvested aboard our two boats. Our family is personally involved in every step from harvest to processing to direct sales, ensuring the highest level of quality.
For the 2015 season, Loki Fish Company is working directly with seven boats (including the Loki and Njord) to help meet our nation-wide demand for high quality wild salmon. All of the fishermen we work with have a strong personal relationship with our family and are paid a premium to handle their fish beyond the industry standard. They fish the same areas of Southeast Alaska and Puget Sound as we do, gillnetting for salmon and following our exacting handling and icing procedures. This includes bleeding, dressing and immersing the salmon in refrigerated seawater holds, and offloading directly to our trucks for processing and distribution.
We are proud to participate in a salmon harvest that has been internationally certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council.
