Kwee-Jack Fish Company Sponsors Biggest Giveaway Yet

July marks the middle of summer, and many of us are eating more seasonal fruits and vegetables and a bit less protein. Come September, we will be seeking high-quality proteins to build muscle and satisfy our growing hunger brought on by autumn. This is why Natural Awakenings Twin Cities is so excited to share their July giveaway which is sponsored by Kwee-Jack Fish Company. Beginning July 18, people can sign up for a chance to win a 10-pound share of sushi-grade, professionally filleted salmon valued at $159, sourced by Kwee-Jack.

The annual wild Alaskan sockeye salmon run in Bristol Bay began in mid-June and runs through late July. “As salmon fishermen, we use small boats and gill nets to fish near the mouth of the Kvichak River,” explains Noah Locke, the community-supported fishery director. “The hand-picked bounty is transferred quickly to larger vessels to chill en route to the professional processors who work nearby on the fishing grounds.”

As a Community Supported Fishery (CSF), Kwee-Jack offers fisherman-direct access to sustainably harvested wild Alaskan salmon. When purchased online prior to the season, it allows them to purchase necessities like professional processing and frozen freight.

Furthermore, by seeking wild fish from the fisherman, we are actively supporting the fishery itself. “The small-boat fishermen invest in the health and sustainability of both the fish and the habitat in which they live, which brings the support of the CSF full circle,” shares Locke.

“This is our third giveaway this year, and we are so grateful for our friends at Kwee-Jack Fishing Company for agreeing to sponsor,” states Candi Broeffle, publisher of Natural Awakenings Twin Cities magazine. “The quality of their salmon is the best, so much better than we can get in the big box stores. Someone is going to be an incredibly lucky winner.”

The winner of the Father’s Day Giveaway was Mary Pettiford from St. Paul. She received a $100 gift certificate to Home Depot.
