Alaskan Harvest, based in Portland, Oregon, sells high-quality Alaskan seafood like King Crab and King Salmon and provides cheaper shipping rates to their customers. From their catalog and points program to their money-back guarantee, Alaskan Harvest is a top-rated Seafood Market site we’re proud to include in our review.
Alaskan Harvest's main trademark is their beautiful Alaskan seafood, and they sell a wide variety of prepared food items as well (Appetizers, Desserts and Soups, Chowders and Crab Cakes). Their shellfish offerings include King Crab, Dungeness Crab, Opilio Crab, Razor Clams, fresh Oysters, Sea Scallops, Alaskan Shrimp and Maine and Australian Lobsters. Their fresh and frozen fish varieties include Alaskan Salmon, Alaskan Halibut, Black Cod, Rockfish, Swordfish and Yellowfin Tuna.
They sell the classics like Alaskan King Crab and King Alaskan Salmon (fresh availability subject to the time of year), as well as dozens of other delicious Alaskan delicacies. Their Crab selection is particularly noteworthy, and other than selling King Crab Legs (and Claws), they sell Whole Dungeness Crab and Opilio Crab (also known as Snow Crab). They also sell slightly sweet Halibut and mild in flavor Razor Clams, both highly-lauded seafood items from this Northern part of the world.
For those buying a gift or can’t decide on an item, one of their Samplers or Combos is a great way to go. They offer nearly two dozen samplers to choose from, and it may be hard to choose. From their “Healthy Seafood Combo,” containing Yellowfin Tuna Steaks, Swordfish Steaks, and Rockfish fillets to their “Ultimate Alaskan,” containing King Salmon Fillets, Dungeness Crab sections, Silver Salmon Fillets, Halibut Fillets, Hot Smoked King Salmon and Sea Scallops, their Sampler gifts will blow you away.
Alaskan Harvest also offers several nice extras on their site. Their Recipes section includes some tasty-looking recipes, like their Spicy Smoked Salmon Pizza to Crabs in Coconut Milk. They also include preparation tips on their site, and make sure cooking instructions are sent with every order. And their Samplers & Combos (and gift certificates) make gift shopping a breeze. If a seafood lover doesn’t like a gift purchased from Alaskan Harvest, check their brain for loose marbles.
For those of you looking to save some cash by becoming a frequent shopper of theirs, their Frequent Buyer Points Program will certainly entice. For every dollar you spend, you receive 1 point. Alaskan Harvest then adds specific items that are redeemable by points (found in “Points Products” are of their page). Three seafood items and a non-food item are always available to purchase with points.
In addition to the Frequent Buyers Points Program, Alaskan Harvest also impresses by offering a free print catalog; a rarity among the other top sites we reviewed.
We love Alaskan Harvest’s blog, Seafood News Blog, mainly because it contains several entries and is frequently updated. Their blog contains entries on a variety of topics and is a great way to brush up on your “Seafood 101” knowledge. From news regarding Alaskan Cod fisherman forming an export association to an awesome “Shrimp Sliders” recipe, this seafood blog is one of the best among our top-rated sites.
Alaskan Harvest is serious about Alaskan seafood and getting it to you as cheaply as possible. From their great blog to their generous points discounts, Alaskan Harvest is more than deserving to be among our top-rated Seafood Market Review sites.
