Sitka Salmon Plans for Growth

Sitka Salmon Shares continues to grow.

The business is expanding into a larger warehouse section of the Sustainable Business Center, 2900 W. Main St. It is one of the businesses that operates out of the SBC, and has a retail office in downtown Galesburg, 109 S. Cherry St.

Sitka Salmon President Nic Mink said a freezer that can hold 100,000 pounds of fish will be operating early next year, which is five times larger than the current freezer at the SBC.

Currently the company has about 4,000 members, or customers who receive five pounds of fish delivered to their door in a vacuum-sealed container with recipes and a newsletter on where the fish came from monthly. The new freezer will allow the company to grow to between 5,000 and 10,000 members.
