A bit of info on King Salmon from our friends at Kodiak Fish Market:
The King salmon comes from Southeast Alaska where they are allowed to troll (different than trawl) for salmon. The trollers are usually small boats, up to 40 feet in length. They lower weighted hooks into the water and then “troll” or motor slowly, usually around 3 knots, through the water and wait until the salmon hit the unbaited hooks. The salmon come aboard individually rather than being net caught, so they are handled carefully and iced to preserve the quality. Troll caught king salmon are usually better quality than net caught because of the method of fishing and handling.
