Chinook Salmon are the largest Pacific salmon and are prized for its rich flavor.
Coho Salmon is also called Silver Salmon. Sockeye Salmon is often called Blueback. Both have a deep red color.

Annalise joined the ladies as the real "baby" of the bunch! She's in her 20s and bringing a new generation to the cannery line! Her smile is quick to occur and her positive attitude brings smiles to others during the day!
