The 2022 California king salmon commercial season is off to a good start


Despite a few seasonal hiatuses, locals can still expect to find fresh, wild California king salmon to enjoy right now all summer long.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Available only during the summer months, fresh, wild California King Salmon is here to enjoy, just in time for outdoor entertaining and summertime celebrations. Officially launched in early May, commercial anglers in California are reporting a strong start to the season despite some restrictions due to ongoing conservation efforts.

“We are happy to report that the season has officially started well and we are seeing lots of fish filling local markets,” said David Goldenberg, executive director of the California Salmon Council. “We encourage salmon lovers to seek out and ask for it, whether at their local supermarket or their favorite restaurant, so they can enjoy the freshest, most delicious wild-caught salmon money can buy.”

Wild California King Salmon can be found locally at select grocery stores, fish markets, fine restaurants, farmers markets, and even directly from anglers just off the wharf. Renowned for its firm texture, robust flavor and higher omega-3 fatty acid content than other salmon varieties, California King salmon also offers consumers a sustainable and responsible option.
