Sockeye Salmon Spotting


Recommended Posts

By now we should all be aware that we're in for the sockeye season of a lifetime, with the Fraser River run at its highest in a century. Now we need to get smart and not pay last-year prices... so where are you buying your sockeye, and for how much?

I bought a ~6 lb impeccably fresh, line caught, dressed sockeye from Organic Ocean at the False Creek fisherman's dock for $25 (bigger fish were $30). Grilled it last night, some leftovers went into a risotto (with broth made from head and trimmings) tonight and have plenty more to use up the next couple of days.

Not sure if they'll be selling every day but Fri-Sat-Sun mornings after 10 are a good bet.

They sell at Steveston too but False Creek's the better location to get them.
