wild salmonIn Celtic mythology the salmon is associated with wisdom.  Welsh mythology looks to the salmon as the wisest of all creatures.  Glasgow, Scotland features a salmon on the city’s coat of arms.  According to one Northwest Native Indian legend, salmon were actually human beings with superhuman abilities and eternal lives. 

When you know about the salmon’s incredible life journey, one that takes them from raging rivers to the mighty ocean and back again, it makes sense that our ancestors honored them.

That’s why sustainable fishing has been an important part of my own heritage. And it’s why the smoked salmon that you buy from Fairhaven Bay Seafoods is carefully selected, hand-filleted and treated with gratitude and respect every step of the way.

Here’s a little video about family tradition and the holiday season.  Leave a comment and tell me what you think.


Happy holidays to you!
