Our Business, Our Heritage
We were born into the seafood industry in Alaska and had front row seats to the early days of the King crab fishery. Life in the remote stretches of Alaska wasn’t always easy, but it taught us resilience as well as the importance of community and long-held relationships. Today, things look a little different than they did in the early days, but quality and sustainability remain our guiding principles. From sea-to-table, our family-owned business is proud to be America’s most-trusted source for Alaska crab.
Alaska’s remote, pristine fishing grounds and icy currents produce some of the most sought after wild-caught crab and seafood in the world. Our artisan Red King crab clusters are hand-harvested by the residential fishermen of Norton Sound using small boats and single pots. Smaller in size than commercially harvested Red King, this limited, boutique fishery is renowned for its tender and sweet crab. Our Golden King crab comes from the steep slopes of the Aleutian Islands, where the 40 active volcanoes of the Aleutian chain form a porous boundary between the North Pacific and the Bering Sea. This regular infusion of swift-moving, nutrient-packed water means that our Golden King crab enjoy some of the purest feed in the Bering Sea.
Sustainable Alaskan King Crab
Keyport is proud to be part of the collaboration between fleet, scientists, and state agencies that is keeping the population of Alaska crab at a healthy and thriving level. As part of a new stock assessment program launched in 2015, scientists accompany the Golden King crab boats documenting and assessing the stocks and collecting demographic data, which allows for real time review of the health of the fishery to prevent overfishing. In partnership with the Bering Sea Aleutian Island Crab Rationalization program which allocates 10% of the total allowable catch to western Alaska villages through the Western Alaska Community Development Quota Program (CDC).
