I was looking to buy some frozen wild sockeye from Trader Joe's which is always Alaskan. However, the ones I saw today are labeled "Wild" but they are now imported from Russia. WTF?

I've never even heard of Russian sockeye. Tried to Google it and couldn't find much info other than an increase in Russian sockeye imports in the last year.

Anyone know if it's the same as Wild Alaskan? Since 80% of salmon worldwide is farmed (even some stuff labelled "Wild"), I'm always very skeptical if it is not strictly labeled Wild Alaskan. Then again, the waters in Pacific Russia are probably quite similar to Alaska so I dunno.

Trader Joes is a bottom feeder for price worldwide and it appears they got a deal on wild Russian sockeye.
