the alaska wild salmon company

We work with Juneau’s fishing families at Taku River Reds and Pelican’s fishing families at Yakobi Fisheries, to provide you with the best fresh salmon!

Who we are

We’re Mark Stopha and Sara Hannan from Juneau, Alaska. We have passed on our business selling salmon to Chris McDowell of Yakobi Fisheries in Juneau. Thanks to all our customers for your patronage over the years! We remain in Juneau. Sara is now a member of the House of Representatives for the state of Alaska legislature for part of the Juneau area. Mark commercially trolls for salmon a few trips a year, and volunteers for the USAID Farmer to Farmer program, working with fishermen in other countries on fish handling for quality and direct marketing their catch.

I’m Anna Valentine and I live with my husband and four children in Pittsburgh. I had the privilege of growing up on a farm in Michigan, selling fresh produce and flowers at the markets and now we’re happy to be your source for high quality Alaskan salmon at the markets here in Pittsburgh.
