DID YOU KNOW?
Valdez, surrounded by the Chugach Mountains and located within Prince William Sound - is the premier fishing destination in Alaska. Our waters are open year-round, and home to an abundance of seafood - salmon, lingcod, rockfish, halibut, shrimp and more! Valdez is also home to the oldest fishing derby in Alaska - the Valdez Fish Derby.
Each year visitors witness the return of 10-15 million Pink Salmon - This represents the bulk of the local commercial fishing industry. Pink Salmon are harvested and processed in a variety of different ways (whole, filets, canned and eggs) and shipped around the world for consumption.
JOIN THE CELEBRATION!
The Seafood Festival is designed to celebrate and bring awareness of Pink Salmon as a healthy and sustainable food source. We also recognize the economic importance of the commercial fishing industry plus our salmon hatchery. Come and enjoy the day and see the showcase of all the incredible seafood found in our waters.
