About Your Local Fisherman
Matt and Maureen Marinkovich have been selling fish directly to their fish customers on San Juan Island for 20 years. Matt is a commercial fisherman, and started selling his freshly-caught salmon basically right off the boat (we’d actually sell them up in town for everyone’s convenience). Now we are selling mostly Bristol Bay caught sockeye salmon, from where Matt fishes each summer. These premium sockeye fillets are vacuum packed and filleted by Silver Bay Seafoods, the fisherman-owned company of which Matt is a part in Bristol Bay.
We occasionally offer other tasty species, like blackcod (sablefish), lingcod, and halibut, all of which Matt will procure directly from the fisherman (Matt used to catch these fish but hasn’t been doing it lately), or from Seafood Producers Cooperative located in Sitka, AK, which produces the best quality seafood available.
Matt has also discovered a very affordable, quite delicious, and sustainably harvested rockfish caught off of the coast of Washington. The widow rockfish is light, flakey, and cooks up very well whether it is fried, baked, or BBQ’d on the grill. This is the same fish that were featured in the Fish for Teeth fish tacos during the long run of Fish Taco fundraisers held three times a year in Friday Harbor.
