About Fairweather Fish
Caleb and Jessica Robbins
We are a small-scale, husband and wife operated, salmon slaying team. Individually caught by hook and line, each fish is landed and immediately processed by our own two hands. We freeze at sea - Meaning our fish enter the vessel's powerful blast freezer less than 60 minutes after leaving the ocean, locking in summer-fresh flavor long past the winter to come.
Why Frozen At Sea?
Cellular degradation begins as soon as fish leave the water. Your "fresh" fish from the grocery store may actually be over 10 days old! By rapidly freezing our fish to - 45ºF, we "freeze it in time", meaning your freshly thawed fish will taste like it just left the ocean.
23% of seafood purchased by retailers goes to waste, and the short shelf life of fresh fish demands hasty, carbon heavy transportation. Freezing at sea allows you to thaw at will - No surprises, no waste.
By offering only frozen at sea products caught ourselves, we can promise consistency and quality throughout our products. Buyers and sellers can depend on predictably priced, high grade seafood twelve months a year.
Wild bounty from the pristine waters of Alaska at your fingertips in Idaho
Products come in individually sealed portions, delivered to your door by your fishermen.
Black Bass, Yelloweye, we love them all. Rockfish's flesh is sweet and rich, with a large flake practically created to dunk in butter or fill a taco.
For the more daring Idaho foodies, Octopus is your next adventure. Simmer for hours or quickly poach, throw it on the grill, and wow your friends with your bold protein choice.
Who We Are
Owner | Captain | Mechanic | Optimist
A third generation commercial fisherman, Caleb has salmon running through his veins. He grew up set netting on the mighty Alsek River, and made the leap to captaining an open ocean troller at the age of 17. He and Jessica tied the knot in 2013, and purchased their own vessel in 2016. Caleb's zest for life (and addiction to fishing) keeps the mood aboard the boat in high sprits - Even when wind and waves abound.
Owner | Deckboss | Checkbook Balancer
Jess began fishing with Caleb in 2012. Born and raised in Boise, the wild oceans of Alaska hooked her immediately, and all of a sudden, no other life seemed possible. After graduating with her B.S. in Biology in 2014, she and Caleb began the hunt for their perfect vessel. They purchased the Alsek through a friend Jess met at Boise State - proving her college degree wasn't a total waste, after all.
