From June 19 through June 25, a sea of the region’s best restaurants and grocers will showcase unique dishes and products featuring one of Alaska’s unsung, yet delicious, seafood heroes during the third annual Alaska Herring Week. Given the tremendous response to Alaska Herring Week in 2016, the number of participants has doubled to nearly 60, providing seafood aficionados and foodies an even wider array of opportunities to try these exclusive Alaska herring creations.

The participating culinary experts and chefs, many of whom are James Beard Award winners, jumped on board to support Alaska Herring Week and shine the spotlight on this “underloved,” wild, abundant and sustainable fish. Alaska Herring Week is an opportunity to taste this delicious and healthful fish, while supporting the fishermen that bring Alaska herring from sea to table and a fishery dedicated to providing a sustainable food supply.

Alaska herring is one of the largest, most abundant and sustainable fisheries in the world, but has largely disappeared from U.S. menus and fish markets. The Alaska Herring Development Project, a program of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, coordinatesAlaska Herring Week to re-introduce the fish into the Seattle area’s culinary scene. This year, participants will receive Alaska herring courtesy of North Pacific Seafoods, which produces the herring fillets in Naknek, Alaska.

Alaska Herring Week was founded in 2015 by Lexi of Old Ballard Liquor Co., and is coordinated by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute and co-sponsored by Ocean Beauty, Northern Air Cargo, Carlile Transportation, Chateau Ste. Michelle and Alaskan Brewing Co.
