Product Description

Just received this one-time deal (limited quantity) on portioned out packs of Wild Keta/Chum Salmon Fillets (skin-on, pin bone-out) 

Properly pre-frozen & safe to feed or enjoy now! A very affordable sustainable wild salmon choice. Because the Keta/Chum species is so low in fat, we're going to see how they dehydrate...stay tuned.

These are probably NOT the wild salmon you're accustomed to: this Keta/Chum salmon is wild, sustainable and very healthy, but the lower price is typically related to their paler color and because this is a lower fat, flaky textured fish. We got an additional deal by buying up a whole bunch that needed to move -- to your benefit!

While this species is not as potent when it comes to the antioxidant astaxanthin, the best wild salmon roe IKURA comes from this species of salmon.

Even though the Keta/Chum Salmon is much lower in fat, when it comes to omega3 value the Keta beats/equal to the best of all: King Salmon.


Species Total Fat/Omega-3s (grams)
King (chinook) 10.4/2.0
Sockeye (red)  8.6/1.2
Silver (coho)  5.9/1.3
Pink (humpie)  3.5 /1.1
Keta (chum)  3.2/2.1

Nutritionally, these fillets are an outstanding choice!

 

Cautions:

Avoid feeding seafood & fish to all cats.

Avoid feeding seafood & fish to animals with renal/kidney, urinary or bladder imbalances, weaknesses or conditions of concern.

Avoid seafood in individuals that commonly experience histamine reactions or mast cell activation syndrome. 

Feeding & Handling:

Keep frozen and serve frozen (most dogs prefer this and may not tolerate/consume if served defrosted)

When introducing fish for the first time, start with a small slice/piece once per day. Increase to feeding a full fish or larger amounts, over a week or two.

Quantity: 

Feed fish as up to 10% of the overall menu or diet for best results. 

Certain breeds of dogs with a genetic/breed indigenous or ancestral heritage originating from cultures or regions for which seafood is a primary or predominant food may do best with larger amounts in the diet, but we do not recommend exceeding 30% maximum long-term.
