Fairweather Fish Co.

Caleb and Jessica Robbins

We are a small-scale, husband and wife operated, seafood harvesting 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 our 44' vessel's powerful blast freezer less than 60 minutes after leaving the ocean, locking in summer-fresh flavor long past the winter to come. 

When we're not fishing in Southeast Alaska, we're selling our catch to fine folks in Southern Idaho. We love what we do, and are honored that you would choose to nourish your family with our wild seafood. 

Benefits of
Frozen at sea



After being landed, your catch is headed, gutted, gently IV bled, then washed thoroughly. We even vacuum them before sending them downstairs to ensure there’s no blood, sea lice, or slime!

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.


immediately blast frozen

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.


23% seafood harvested from our precious oceans goes to waste -- and the short shelf life of fresh fish demands hasty, carbon heavy transportation methods. By purchasing frozen fish, you're helping both the ocean, and your wallet. Thaw at will, enjoy delicious fish, and reduce waste while you're at it.

SUSTAINABLY hook + line caught

Our salmon, lingcod, and rockfish are all landed one at a time hook and line, using a fishing method called "power trolling". We drag between 20 - 80 hooks behind our boat, and use artificial lures to tempt fish into biting


Since our fish are all caught by hook, any unwanted catch (aka “by-catch”) can be safely returned to the sea. Common by-catch includes rockfish - which we’re allowed to retain, as well as king salmon, pink salmon, and halibut - all of which are safely returned to the ocean.

Caleb Robbins

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.


Jessica Robbins

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.
