The Stikine River, approximately 610 km long, is located in northwest British Columbia, emptying into Eastern Passage, just north of the city of Wrangell, Alaska. The Stikine River is located across Great Glacier Provincial Park, home of a large periglacial tongue which projects into a pristine and frigid lake. This uninhabited and remote glacial eco-system in northwestern British Columbia supporting uncommon plant species and old growth forests, is only accessible by boat.
Due to its length and water temperature, salmon returning to the Stikine river have greater fat reserves for the long journey. What this means is that Stikine river salmon have a more Omega 3 fat.
