Hugh Ahnatook

As a local Native American-owned small business, Sacred Waters Fish Company was founded in September 2016. As people and as a company, we are committed to sustainability that supports people, the earth and a healthy economy for all. This business started with a gift of Salmon to Hugh. That gift allowed for the idea of Sacred Waters Fish Company to happen and help others along the way. Through our work, we honor traditional ways of our ancestors.

Sacred Waters Fish Company is dedicated to:

• Honoring the salmon, the waters, the lands and the peoples

• Introducing “Fair Trade” along the Columbia River

• Providing First Nations’ foods to those interested!

Connecting the regions, several types of salmon travel from Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean up to Alaska and then back home. These include: Sockeye, Chinook King, Coho Silvers and Steelhead. Salmon has always been an important part of First Nations foods and culture.

From Salmon Bakes to Smoked Salmon, Sacred Waters Fish Company provides delicious opportunity to experience a deeply valued part of the Pacific Northwest culture. We are honored to share our smoked salmon with you, your family and friends.
