In the cold pristine waters of Alaska, fish develop naturally with a superior flavor and texture. These remarkable fish also produce top quality roes that are used to make caviar and other roe products prized the world over. Salmon ikura, or lightly salted individual eggs, is popular in Europe, Japan and other countries. Salmon sujiko, or salted eggs in skeins, is also popular in specialty markets, as are the processed roes from Alaska pollock, Pacific cod and Alaska herring.

Product Specifications
North Pacific Seafoods plants are strategically located near the major seafood harvesting areas in Alaska to ensure that we receive fish at the perfect maturity and absolute freshness. The roe is quickly removed from the fresh fish. Then all roe products are carefully cured and packed to maintain their peak quality and freshness.
