From the spawn to the dish. The legendary North Sea, the home of Vikings and legends, the distant Gulf of Alaska where the freshwater of the glaciers and the saltwater of the Pacific join to give rise to spectacular natural phenomena... seas in which salmon follow the coast, swimming up the rivers in the breeding season to spawn in their headwaters.
Places which Martiko has reached, following the tradition and the knowhow of the arrantzales, fishermen from the nearby ports of Gipuzkoa who left for distant Newfoundland on long and difficult runs. Salmon from Alaska, halfway between legend and modernity. Fished in the traditional manner in the crystal-clear waters of Alaska. This salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, is the most highly valued in the world owing to its exquisite taste and the colour of its flesh.
