Wild Alaskan Company Reviews
About Wild Alaskan Company
Do you need - or perhaps simply want - to eat more seafood? Seafood is a great source of healthy nutrients, like protein and omega-3s, yet many people simply aren’t eating enough of it. It can be expensive and hard to find at the grocery store. Enter Wild Alaskan.
How Does it Work?
Wild Alaskan Company is a monthly seafood subscription box. Each delivery comes directly from Bristol Bay, Alaska, and provides perfectly portioned filets of sockeye, coho, or king salmon. The fish is sent directly from Alaska, and is 100 percent sustainable.
The company allows you to purchase multiple sizes, including those for portioned for families. As a member, you can save up to forty percent and have access to free shipping. All boxes arrive within seven days, and come at the same time each month.
The type of salmon you receives depends on availability, and this family-owned and operated business as ties to the Alaskan fishing community that allow you to receive the freshest fish in the shortest amount of time.
The company is unique in that its products are transparent and sustainable, with fish that is locally sourced in the United States and harvested in an environmentally friendly manner. The fish arrives ready to cook and is never genetically modified. It’s the best quality of fish you can purchase, and with a large variety of monthly plans, you really get the best of both worlds.

For $121.93 plus shipping, you receive twelve packs of 6 oz portions. For $239.76, you can receive twenty-four packs of 6 oz salmon. This deal comes with free shipping. For each available package price point with salmon, Wild Alaskan also offers a deal with wild white fish and a combo deal with both salmon and white fish.

There is also a community, block party, and neighborhood share. The block party share is the largest, with up to 192 fillets at $6.99 each.
The company works hard to make sure their products are affordable, often offering coupons to help make the cost of ordering one of these subscriptions even lower.

They can be reached by email at [email protected] or through the live chat on their website. They also have active social media pages, with accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

The company also offers a 100 percent money-back guarantee, refunding your entire purchase price if you are dissatisfied with your purchase.
Wild Alaskan Salmon Company is a small organization, with a handful of employees who have been around for quite some time. The founder, Arron Kallenberg, has headquarters both in Alaska and in the lower 48, and offers jobs to like-minded individuals hoping to support the real food movement.
This company is still relatively new, but has positive reviews around the web. People appreciate that the fish arrives ready to be cooked or put into the freezer, shipped in an insulated container full of dry ice via express air service or ground. It ships anywhere in the United States.
The majority of the negative reviews about Wild Alaskan had to do with the fact that the salmon often arrives bone-in. While the company has now worked hard to make sure all of their products are completely boneless, this was a deal breaker for some people.
Competitors and Alternatives
Wild Alaskan Salmon Company isn’t the only organization that sells fresh salmon and seafood directly to your doorstep via a subscription services. There are countless others. A few of the most popular ar Wild Alaska Salmon & Seafood, Wild Premium Salmon, Alaska Gold Club, and Sitka Salmon Shares.
Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood delivers seafood products via next day shipping, as well as free shipping rates in most cases. They sell products like salmon, cod, tuna, halibut, and shrimp allowing a bit more variety in your order.
Wild Premium Salmon offers a range of salmon shares, with the current offerings including five pounds of whole sockeye salmon fillet for $92.50 and a bulk package of 40 pounds of salmon for $540. These products are shipped in a similar manner, and like Wild Alaskan, they only ship within the United States.
Alaska Gold Club offers wild coho salmon, king salmon, sablefish, and halibut. You can order from this company and have products delivered on a quarterly, biweekly, or monthly basis. You can even order to receive shipments every other month, too. This subscription service allows a bit more customization when it comes to timing, but lacks the variety of Wild Alaskan Salmon Company.
Sitka Salmon also markets their products as “boat to doorstep,” delivering fresh catches directly to your home. Their website is tough to navigate, so it’s difficult to determine exact pricing, as their shares are dependent on fishing conditions. However, they offer long-term shares that include unique seafood products like black bass, prawns, albacore tuna, crab, cod, and halibut. They also offer a salmon-only share.
Where to Buy?
Although you can purchase Wild Alaskan salmon from a variety of retailers (including, of course, your local grocery store, in most cases!) you cannot purchase products specifically from Wild Alaskan Salmon Company except by visiting their website at this time.
Is Wild Alaskan Worth It?
If you’re like most Americans, you likely find it difficult to find high quality, sustainable, and premium-grade seafood where you live. Seafood fraud, or the reporting of fish as a different species than it actually is, is extremely common in many parts of the country, too. The Wild Alaskan Company provides you with access to fresh-caught fish from Alaska, making it easier to eat healthier and more sustainably.
15 ‘Wild Alaskan Company’ Reviews
FIVE STARS!!!!! I love salmon and I am very fussy about all the fish I eat. If I go to the store and the fish has ANY kind of a smell at all, I will not buy it. The fact that this fish is flash frozen means I am getting the most wonderful fish you would want to eat.
I have had to postpone some orders a couple of times and there was no problem doing so. Just a couple of clicks and tell them when I do want my next order. I have had nothing but positive experiences in dealing with this company.
I love salmon so I ordered 2 boxes of 6oz pieces. All of it is ruined. It arrived frozen and I properly thawed 4 pieces and it taste of frozen water and the texture is wrong. I buy frozen salmon from the local store and have never had fish this terrible. Since they are not answering their phone (should have been a red flag), I tried emailing the company but got no response but I was able to cancel membership. Realizing I'm stuck with it I've tried marinating in lemon, then I tried high grade olive oil but even when I can improve the flavor it still has this awful aftertaste of old frozen water. I tried making pate and salmon cakes and it's still inedible. I would not even feel right about donating it to the food bank. The fact that I got absolutely no response from the company is equally disappointing.
I sent an email 6 days ago
Just checked my bank account to see if I had been charged for the order and saw that it had been charged in NY? Is that where the fish is being shipped from? Don't really want anything delivered to my home that comes from NY at ths time with the 'virus' running rampant there at this time. I'm in Washington and we have our own issues here. Do I need to wear a mask and gloves when I see it coming and then do I need to sterilize the box and contents? I'm conserned. My first order will be here in a few days. Sorry about the rating. There really isn't an option that addresses my question.
Spam spam and more spam, will never order from these spammers
Wild Alaska, before you come back at me claiming I'm reviewing a different company, I am not alleging that Wild Alaska is sending out spam emails. The addresses are obviously not official, but for whatever reason, it is obvious that something in your business model incentivises spam emails. I see from your website that you have a membership program and that it apparently commits members to a monthly shipment. Without getting into the works of your program I can only guess that there is some sort of reward given to members who generate referrals. This would be one possible explanation of the proliferation of spam emails linking to your website. I see that another comment here says "they hire out their spamming to foreign spam gangs." I don't know if that is real, but if so, it would be reprehensible.
Perhaps you will say that you have no control over what your members do to get referrals, but then you are saying you have no control over your public image, and that would be a sad thing. This is very harmful to your image, as you can see in the list of other negative reviews. Sadly, I will never be able to review your actual products, because the spam has made me so angry I wouldn't try your products if you gave them to me for free. No, you aren't sending it, but I still hold you responsible for allowing your name to be sullied without remorse.
Perhaps there is nothing you can do to fix it, so my only recourse is to hate your company in perpetuity for adding to the headache I have to endure daily to sift through the garbage in my junk mail to be sure I don't miss the MANY important emails I get there. I have had this particular email address since 1998. Thanks to you and others like you, like Crape Erase, for instance, I may have to give up on it. Just assume that I have directed toward you whatever profane statement you would find most offensive.
Oh, and yes, I am going around to all of the review sites "spamming this review." It's that important to me.
I asked a lot of questions about sourcing, where the salmon was caught, can I pick King instead of Sockeye etc. Lots of legitimate questions.
The reply I received was to go F-off.
So I did, will never do business with these unsophisticated morons.
Any company which has to send me 3 spam emails a day from different emails each time is no company I want anything to do with. If they abuse non customers like this, imagine what they do to paying customers. I will NEVER purchase anything from these scam artists.
