Based in South Carolina, Doug's Wild Alaska Salmon is a business that makes fresh-frozen salmon available to you at a reasonable price. Because we are Alaskan fisherman, we can provide you with the highest quality flash-frozen wild salmon. Dougswild is owned and operated by the Resetarits family, three generations of Alaskan fisherman spanning a 30 year period.
Grandpa Dan is a South Carolina resident who flies north each summer to join the boys for the harvest. Dad Doug, a part time Carolinian, is a 30 year Homer, Alaska native, a licensed Coast Guard captain and former Bering Sea crabber of "Deadliest Catch" fame. Our four boy’s ages 16-25, all began fishing salmon with Dad between the ages of 8 and 10. We operate four, 32 foot fishing boats during June and July. Bristol Bay is the largest wild "red salmon" or sockeye salmon fishery in the world. Certified sustainable, natural, and robust, the Alaska salmon fisheries are known worldwide as a model of successful fisheries management and economic prosperity.
As the fishermen, we are blessed to experience the beauty of Alaska during the renowned Bristol Bay fishing season, to participate in the native culture, and to work the long hours side-by-side as fathers and sons. As demand increases for wild salmon and omega 3 rich diets, we are proud to make our product available to others. We have created Doug's Wild Alaska Salmon to share Alaska’s all natural, sustainable salmon at a fair price.
