Wildfish Cannery Smoked Herring


Wildfish Cannery was founded in 1987 to carry on the craft and time-honored traditions of the region in the small seaside town of Klawock, home to Alaska’s very first salmon cannery more than a century ago. Klawock, located on Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska, has a population of just 796, most of whom consider fishing an essential part of life. Today, Wildfish Cannery is now run by chef and grandson of the founder Mathew Scaletta, who is dedicated to melding his fine-dining background, honed in foodie paradise Portland, Oregon, with his family’s craft.
