Aboard the 42-foot Lucky Dove, Claire Laukitis and Peter Neaton fish the pristine waters of the Bering Sea near False Pass, Alaska with Claire’s family. Claire is a second-generation fisherman and born in Alaska. Peter comes from a family farm in Watertown, Minnesota, and has been fishing with the Laukitis family for the past four years.
After realizing the anonymous origin of the seafood offered in the supermarket, Claire and Peter decided to start Morshovi Bay Fish Company to create a direct connection between you and the independent fishermen. Throughout the year they catch premium salmon, halibut, and cod in sustainably managed fisheries. Claire and Peter take great pride in the quality, health benefits and sustainability of their region’s seafood and they want to share it with you.
In 2009 Claire and Peter met at the University of Vermont where they earned degrees in business and nutrition, respectively. When not fishing with Claire’s family or working on the farm with Peter’s family, they spend time in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.
Check out the Vermont Quarterly’s article “Going Wild” featuring Claire and Peter’s daily routine on the boat and how UVM’s environmental and farm-to-table values influence Morshovi Bay.
Claire and Peter’s are celebrating their wedding just a few days before starting their Salmon season in False Pass. They will catch your share on their honeymoon!
