Trade for prosperity

While fresh fish is great to consume throughout the week as a part of a balanced diet, consider canned Alaska salmon when looking for an easy and quick way to add lean high-quality protein to your meal. Additionally, it is generally less expensive than fresh seafood, making it a budget-friendly ingredient, which can be stored in the cupboard until you’re ready to eat it.


Canned salmon is as nutritious as fresh salmon and contains a variety of key nutrients, including protein, calcium, vitamins B & D, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. About 22% of Alaska’s salmon catch becomes a canned product, full of flavour and filling thanks to high protein levels: 100g of drained canned Sockeye has 167 calories, and 24g of protein, while 100g of drained Alaska Pink has 138 calories with 23 grams of protein.

Canned salmon comes in two forms: with skin & bone and skinless & boneless. The benefits of canned salmon with skin & bone are that it’s full of calcium, necessary for the body to build and maintain strong bones and it also helps with cardiac muscle protection, weight management, the prevention of kidney stones and dental care.


In January, Alaska Seafood is celebrating Wild Alaska Seafood Month, which is a month-long campaign focused on educating consumers about Alaska Seafood and its fantastic health benefits and aiming to make audiences aware that there is a choice to be made when it comes to seafood.

You can easily find Wild Alaska seafood sourced from pristine Alaskan waters in all major supermarkets nationwide including Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, M&S, ASDA, Morrisons and Ocado.
