The Family

wild salmon family

We are proud to be a family owned and operated business. Come meet us in person at a farmers market. The Loki Fish Co. family is:

Pete Knutson

Pete was born in Seattle and raised in Everett, WA. In addition to being a longtime commercial fisherman and a commissioner on the Puget Sound Salmon Commission, he has a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology and teaches at Seattle Central Community College. Pete has been active in numerous local marine conservation issues regarding the protection of salmon habitat and sustainable fisheries.


Hing Lau Ng

Hing was born in Kwangdung Province, China, but immigrated to Detroit as a baby, where she spent the next twenty-odd years. She found her way to the Pacific Northwest after van-traveling the U.S. and Canada for several months in 1976. Hing splits her time between entertaining the pack of Knutson family dogs, doing crossword puzzles, and overseeing the financial aspects of the company. 

Jonah Knutson

jonahJonah began deck-handing for his father Pete when he was still a teenager, and has been a regular on the Loki since he was a baby. In 2006, he inherited the Loki and began to fish it himself—with the help of his good friend Ben Jaynes—in southeast Alaska and Puget Sound. In late 2017, Jonah stepped in to fill the role of business manager at Loki Fish Co in addition to his responsibilities as the captain of the Loki.  


Dylan Knutson

While Jonah and Pete fish in Alaska, Dylan has been running the business in Seattle year-round for over a decade. In 2017, Dylan stepped back from his management role at Loki in order to begin graduate studies at the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine.
