Ep. 18 - Wild Caught Salmon CSA

Reid Ten Kley of Iliamna Fish Co, chats with me about his family’s sockeye salmon fishery that sells their Bristol Bay caught salmon in Portland, OR and New York City via CSA shares. Learn about:

  • The methods Bristol Bay uses to maintain their sockeye population each year
  • The benefits of buying directly from your fishermen
  • How true sustainability means accounting for ALL inputs and outputs.

What is Reid's top tip for eating healthfully and supporting your community and environment? You can't do everything perfectly, but if you try to do a little bit better, it will make a difference. If you're on a tight budget, eat a little less salmon and spend a little more on it to get more consciously produced, healthy fish, that improves the lives of the producers and the regional economy.
