How does Virgin Bay Seafood catch the other species of salmon?
Salmon such as sockeye are not caught trolling, instead they are caught by gillnet. This is a type of commercial fishing that uses a net, yet they let the fish come to them instead of pursing the fish. Gillnet fishing has very low bycatch rates unlike that of trawling. These gillnet fishermen also pride themselves on high quality salmon. These salmon, once caught, are bled, slushed iced, and brought to shore much like the troll caught coho, keta and kings.
