It’s not marketing. It’s just nature. No antibiotics or manufactured feed was used in the making of this seafood. Instead, nature molded it into a natural, richer-tasting seafood product. Wild fish get to roam free, feeding on a diverse range of foods. Their varied diet is more nutrient-rich than man-made fish feed. More nutrients paired with long-distance swimming aids in growth and development, and all this equates to bigger flavors, and a healthier balance of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Taste the difference for yourself.
Sustainability is not a new practice for our fishing partners. They’ve etched it into their boats, lines, nets, and poles for generations. They’ve lived it and have also helped shape new generations of ethical fishing. When you purchase from Crowd Cow, you are not just supporting small local fishing crews and co-ops, you’re also supporting the fishing boats that choose to fish the right and ethical way.
The glacial blue depths of Alaska’s Prince William Sound is known for its abundance of marine life. The perfect marriage of quality and experience, we put our trust in Rich and Sena Wheeler, of family-owned Sena Sea, to bring you this incredible salmon and halibut ― the same fish the Sena Sea family has been enjoying for three generations.
The name Sena Sea is a play on words and named after Sena C. Wheeler, whose family has been fishing out of the Pacific Northwest, ever since her grandfather immigrated from Norway to Seattle’s Old Ballard neighborhood. The family tradition of fishing, her grandfather likes to say, probably goes back “300 more generations” in Norway. Rich, who does half the fishing for Sena Sea, strives to pass the tradition of sustainable and respectful fishing to the next generation, so he takes the family out on the boat ― the Miss CamiLou, named for his and Sena’s two daughters ― whenever he can.
Every afternoon, boats motor back into the village of Tenants Harbor, weighed down with lobsters caught in the cold, clear waters of the nearby bay. Home to just 1,850 people, Tenants Harbor has been a fishing outpost for generations. A few years ago, 20 of the village’s independent commercial lobstermen and a dozen student apprentices came together to form the Tenants Harbor Fisherman's Cooperative, which made them all member-owners and let them share both costs and profits.
