Alaska Fish Processing | Shipping Info
“The staff for our charter was GREAT. Made sure every passenger had a good time and caught their limit. Nick was our Captain. Patient and knowledgable of the waters and tides and wicked skills cleaning and fileting our catch. Mike (the owner) has a fantastic set up for all skill levels and makes sure you are well taken care of. Our catch was packaged and frozen ready for shipping or checked baggage. We travelled 12 hours to get home and the fish were STILL FROZEN. Top rate place for sure.” – Kim S.
At our facility in Ninilchik, we have a state of the art Alaska fish processing and vacuuming sealing operation, where you will have the opportunity to see your crew and office staff at work as they clean and prepare your fish for shipping! We take pride in our Captains and Crew members when it comes to fish filleting technique. We strive to make sure our guests take home properly filleted cuts and that our processing and vacuumed seals guarantee freshness upon arriving at home.
Alaska Fish Processing Pricing
After every fishing trip with us, your Captain/ Crew will filet your fish complimentary. At this point you have the option to have it processed, vacuumed sealed, and shipped with our facility. Pricing below reflects this process.
- Processing & Vacuum Sealing – $1.00/ lb
- Box Cost – $16-$24 (15lb box/ 50lb box)
- Shipping- Depends on location. We use Fedex 2Day
Our most common question we have is about shipping. We are partnered with Fedex to ensure proper handling and care of your package. In addition to handling and care, we also want to make sure your package arrives in a timely manner, so that all of your catch arrives frozen and fresh. With that being said, you will have 2 options: Overnight or 2-Day.
Package Cost will be determined at the time of your processing. It 100% depends on weight of your fish and location in which you are sending it to. To better understand costs in advance, we recommend you research FedEx’s cost for your location. The boxes we provide are either 15lb boxes or 50lb boxes for your reference.
A common question that is asked, is whether or not to bring coolers. We do NOT provide coolers for clients to use after a fishing day. With that being said, you do have two options to package your fish. We bag the filleted cuts on board to bring back for fish processing OR you can bring a cooler if you wish to have your filets placed there afterwards.
If you choose to bring a cooler, we ask that you leave it in your car so we can occupy the most space on the boat during your trip. Once we dock, you will have the opportunity to grab your cooler, while we wrap up preparation of your fish.
