Leader Creek Fisheries

About Leader Creek Fisheries

Leader Creek Fisheries began operations in 1999 with one goal in mind - to produce the highest quality Bristol Bay Sockeye fillets, period. Leader Creek has been first in quality and innovation and our fishermen are the best in the Bay. Our fleet paved the way for quality and best handling practices. It's no secret that we were the first, and remain the only, 100% refrigerated fleet. This is how we've been able to consistently produce the best fillets in Bristol Bay. Our fishermen understand what it takes to deliver the highest quality fish and they adhere to the highest quality handling practices from the point of harvest to the point of off-load. From there, we process these beautiful sockeye salmon using state of the art filleting, freezing and packaging equipment.

Every year we hire some 400 individuals to come join our crew for the summer to process salmon. If you're ready for a summer adventure like no other, come work with us in Alaska. The season runs from mid-June until late July (or early August depending on the salmon run). We hire a diverse mix of hardworking, motivated people from across the country and around the world. The work is strenuous and the days can be long. This is not a job for everyone but, if you have what it takes, it has its rewards. Overtime adds up quickly and when you are working with us and you have very few expenses - housing and meals are provided free of charge, as is your airfare to our plant in Alaska.
