We're Su Salmon Co. Su, or Big Su, are local-ese for the Susitna River, but you probably know that if you are among our preferred customers - Alaskans. We're Alaskans too, and proud to provide fresh Su salmon direct to Anchorage and Southcentral.
Our setnet site sits beneath motherly Mt. Susitna—The Sleeping Lady—at the river's mouth just 27 miles across Cook Inlet from downtown Anchorage. We are the city's nearest, big healthy salmon fishery. You might be thinking, I've heard of Kenai, Copper River, and Bristol Bay salmon. Why haven't I heard of Su salmon before? Good question! That's why we're in business.
Half of all Alaskans live within a few minutes of the Su. It is our state's most visited watershed and a top five salmon producer. It drains Denali, the southern slopes of the entire Alaska Range, and the Talkeetna Mountains. Its legendary Devil's Canyon is home to the biggest whitewater in the world. It is traveled nearly as much in winter as in summer by snow-machiners, skiers, and Iditarod mushers. The river's marshy estuary is world class waterfowl habitat while the upper river gives moose and caribou protein to thousands of people - as it has to the river's first residents, the Dena'ina and Ahtna, for millennia.
Yet somehow this remarkable watershed doesn't flow as near the surface of mainstream AK culture as others. It blows our minds constantly and as a business we are motivated first and foremost by making, keeping, and encouraging human connection to it. What better way to do that than by sharing the delicious miracle of salmon?
Things that are loved are protected, and it is our hope that the more we all relate to the incomparable Susitna, the more it will stay healthy for generations to come.
