Owners Mike and Yvette Hudson like to say that, “Hudson Fish Co. is your local link in the food chain.” All of the fish that Mike and Yvette sell is fish that they have caught themselves, or that they have purchased from other small, independently operated boats on the West Coast. They only catch and source wild fish that has been caught in a sustainable manner, using hook & line and trapping methods.
Both partners are actively involved in a multitude of issues surrounding the sustainability and restoration of our salmon runs. They serve as Directors on the Board of the Small Boat Commercial Salmon Fishermen’s Association, and advocate for the future of our oceans through involvement with a number of environmental organizations, such as the Institute for Fisheries Resources and the Coastal Alliance for Aquaculture Reform.

www.hudsonfish.comHudson Fish Co. either catches or sources fish caught off of the California coast, with the exception of Wild King Salmon, which they currently source from Oregon due to restrictions on the California Salmon fishery. Hudson Fish Co. is owned and managed by Mike and Yvette Hudson. There are no organic standards for wild fisheries. All of the fish caught and sold by Hudson Fish are listed on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch list under ‘Best Choice’ or ‘Good Alternative’ classifications. All fish are caught with hook & line and traps, never with nets. This assures the best quality fish, both because the fish reach the boat alive and because they are not bruised or damaged by the nets. These methods also mean that there is minimal damage to non-target species or to the ocean floor. Once caught, the fish are immediately bled, gilled and gutted, then refrigerated and stored at 32 degrees F before returning to port.
