Our Coho were domesticated from wild stock originally from Wallace Creek in the Skykomish River basin of western Washington State. True to their lineage and similar in appearance to their wild cousins, they are a vigorous, silver-sided spectacle, and at the same time, extremely productive under the care of humans.
Since 1973 and for 19 consecutive generations, we've bred our Coho under the same supervision. Coho salmon are one of the best examples of a wild species being successfully maintained in captivity. Highly sought after for their mild taste and firm texture, the majority of our product is sold fresh into the sushi market of Japan.
Our Coho salmon has a firm texture and a mild taste. It is sushi/sashimi grade and is highly sought after in the sushi market.
The benefit of our controlled environment allows us to re-create and deliver the optimal environmental and nutritional conditions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for fish raised at the Riverence facility. This means perpetual availability to the public, without detriment to the development process.
Coho is easily prepared and provides large/thick individual portions. With its bright silver color, it is impressive when displayed as a whole fish.
Riverence Coho salmon are hand-raised with extreme care given to measured input, which creates the highest quality, predictable output. The result is a premium, great tasting, consistent product in every way.
Coho salmon are high in omega-3, contain high protein content, and are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals.
Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) is a species of anadromous fish in the salmon family, one of several species of Pacific salmon. They are a culturally and economically important resource for subsistence, and the fourth most abundant salmon species. They are sometimes referred to as silver salmon, hook nose salmon, blueback salmon, jack salmon, salmon trout, siverside salmon and white salmon.
Coho salmon on the west coast of the United States have experienced large population declines during the past several decades as a result of human-induced and natural factors. Water storage, withdrawal, conveyance, and diversions for agriculture, flood control, domestic, and hydropower purposes have greatly reduced or eliminated historically accessible habitat. Physical features of dams, such as turbines and sluiceways, have resulted in increased mortality of both adults and juvenile salmonids.
We’ve nurtured and perfected our strain since 1973. We intend to ensure its longevity in a way that does not disturb or diminish their natural habitat, helping protect the world's precious ecosystem.
