Harvest Calendar
The seasonality of Alaska seafood is determined by the life cycle of the fish and the regulations governing the harvest times and areas. The charts on this page indicate the harvesting times for each Alaska species by area. In general, fresh fish and shellfish are available during the indicated harvesting periods, with canned salmon, and frozen fish and shellfish available year-round. For specific season opening and closing dates for North Pacific plants please view our annual listing of fishing dates.
