Fished, Not Farmed.
Fresh for You.
A Family Tradition
My name is Matt Maxwell and I am a fourth generation Alaskan fisherman. My great grandparents moved from Washington to Cordova, Alaska to dig razor clams in 1938. Fishing has been a part of my family’s story ever since.
Early in life, my sisters and I took turns going on fishing trips with my dad. Picking berries along the beaches, smoking salmon for our home pack -- these memories are just a glimpse of my childhood. Filling our freezer and pantry with wild food for winter has been fundamental to my family's way of life. We are grateful for the way of life that Eyak lands have provided us.
I captained my first boat the summer of 2012. It started as a way to pay my way through college, but I ended up with a career in wild fisheries. In the off seasons, I enjoy exploring my backyard with my splitboard and traveling to foreign countries (mainly to eat the food!). But, I found the most rewarding part of my life is enjoying home cooked meals with my family and friends.
I founded Slack Tide Seafoods to provide folks who seek the same sustainably sourced seafood
that my family has for generations.
I was excited to receive my Slack Tide Seafoods order yesterday and it didn't disappoint. The Sockeye was melt in your mouth Alaskan fresh. The shipping time is amazing and portions were impressive. The fact this was caught on the October Skye, which crew's on in a plus. Highly recommend STS.
Copper River Sockeye Salmon
To say that I’m impressed is an understatement! The fresh salmon filets were perfectly packaged and grilled like an absolute dream! It was like a little taste of Alaska delivered to my doorstep. I’ll definitely order again and again.
I never knew seafood could taste this good! It showed up frozen, right at my doorstep in
sustainable packaging. I threw the corn based insulation in my compost. I will be
ordering more soon!
I love having portions in my freezer as a quick healthy option for dinner. Wild caught
salmon is the only fish I eat now.
I am thrilled with the quality of King and Sockeye Salmon I ordered from Slacktide
Seafoods. The salmon was beautifully processed and packaged into perfect filets.
Shipping was fast and on time; the freshness of the Salmon was unbelievable and made
me nostalgic for Alaskan Summers. Big thanks to Matt, who made my first sustainable
fish order easy and stress free.
Copper River Salmon is the best fish you can buy, even better when you know who
As a nutritionist, it’s so important to know where your food comes from and to know that
it’s as nutritious as it is delicious. With Slack Tide, I know exactly where my seafood is
coming from, that it's wild caught and that it’s processed using the best practices ! You
can taste the love that goes into this seafood and rest easy knowing you’re getting the
most possible nutrient dense meal. Did I mention it was delivered straight to my door ?!
Thank you, Matt!
I never realized ordering from Slack Tide would make eating healthy so easy and
delicious. I love that the fish comes deboned and vacuum sealed in perfect individual
portions. Ordering was a breeze, shipping was super fast, and the cost was better than I
could find in any store or farmers market. On top of that, I was able to mix and match
different types of salmon, so now I can make Copper River Red one night and King the
next. I'm officially hooked! I don't think I could buy salmon any other way again.
Shipped to Your Home
A small, fishermen-owned-processor cleans our fish as soon as it arrives at the dock. Hand cut portions are placed in parchment paper prior to vacuum sealing to create an oxygen barrier that locks in premium quality. Flash freezing our seafood at -20 degrees for 3 days, ensures sushi-grade quality that you can safely eat raw. This high quality fish is shipped directly to your home in sustainable packaging.
