The seafood industry is Alaska’s largest private sector employer

Born and raised in Alaska’s remote Aleutian Islands, sisters Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton grew up fishing for salmon and halibut from their family’s commercial boat. After college, the pair launched their company, the Salmon Sisters, in 2012, selling sustainably sourced Alaskan seafood alongside nautical clothes and accessories. Customers can purchase frozen, smoked or canned seafood, spice rubs, sweatshirts and more through their online shop or brick-and-mortar locations around Alaska.

The seafood industry is Alaska’s largest private sector employer, and Emma and Claire strive to tell the story of Alaskan seafood and support their coastal communities through their business. The Salmon Sisters donate 1% of all sales to the Give Fish Project, an organization that donates wild seafood to the Food Bank of Alaska.
