SEATTLE (AP) – More than 16,000 pounds of Copper River salmon arrived at SeaTac Airport early Friday morning.

KOMO reports that three more Alaska Airlines flights were inbound from Cordova, Alaska, delivering an additional 48,000 pounds of salmon to the market, where it will then be delivered to restaurants and grocery stores across the country.

The arrival of fresh Copper River king and sockeye salmon is a rite of spring in Seattle where the fish are prized for their flavor. They typically bring the highest prices at restaurants and fish markets.
