Alaska’s Bristol Bay is home to the greatest salmon run on earth. This heritage salmon run of Bristol Bay sockeye salmon is wildly abundant; over 7,000 fishermen just returned from the 2016 fishing season in Bristol Bay, catching more than 37 million sockeye salmon. Earlier this year, commercial fisherman passed the two billion sockeye salmon mark in Bristol Bay’s 133-year fishing history. The vast and pristine watershed continues to amaze and inspire those of us who make our living from her waters.
Celebrate wild sockeye salmon by participating in the Taste the Wild Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon Restaurant Week, running from October 24th-30th in Boulder, Colorado!
The week will kick off with a special dinner at chef Kelly Whitaker’s acclaimed Basta on Sunday, October 24th. Chefs, food professionals, and food lovers will come together in an intimate, collegial setting to taste the unmatched wild flavors of Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon and celebrate our 2016 fishing season. Capacity is limited and we expect this dinner to sell out. Be sure to reserve your seat today!
