New water screener

Just got the new water screening table in from Forbidden Alloy LTd. of Courtney BC.  Photos to follow.  Going to test it out today.

We have the fist million sold, orders for the second million lined up and ready to book the next one.  Make sure that I hear from you so that you don’t “fall through the cracks”.

Sales Orders

We are lining up sales.  You can “get in line” by emailing me at or call Anthony Lindoff at  907-586-9271.  He will make sure that I’ve got your info.

The steps to keep your place in line are:

1. Fill out an return (via email or USPS) your Sales order.  You can send in more than one if you are ordering for different time periods, ie for 2014.   Note that for larger orders you may not get all of the order at once – as supply is limited at this time and we need to spread the orders a bit.  I’ll do my best to tell you as soon as possible about that kind of situation.

2. When we receive the seed from that hatchery that your order will be filled from then we will require a 20% deposit to be sent.  If you haven’t been told up front then expect an invoice to arrive when we get the applicable seed.

3. You will need to submit a transport permit application to ADF&G before we can ship.  If you have submitted this application before we are cleared by pathology (which ensure that our outgoing seed is disease free) then ADF&G will hold your permit until we are cleared.

4. We need to have shipping worked out.  I will be in touch with you about this.  This should become quite standard in the future.

5. After your order has been sent to you, then you will receive a final invoice that includes any shipping/handling charges.

Let us worry about your seed needs.  Know that we are “turning over every stone” to get you what you need.

ADF&G Certification

We are not yet certified by ADF&G to sell seed.  If you submit an application for a  transport permit (from us to you)  before we are certified, then ADF&G will hold it until we are.  The certification is to ensure that our product is “disease free.”

Update 6/12/13

Seed is growing great.  Water temps are climbing up to 52-55F.  Some Noctiluca bloom, but not down in the bins – so all OK there.

Doing more “hand sorting” with 1/4″ screen today.  Water sort table should be on it’s way to the Seattle barge today – then to Craig next week.  This item will be much appreciated.

Very little loss and excellent growth – to date.

More seed coming in maybe near the end of this month.

Stay tuned.
