The whole Hillstrand family has been life- long Alaskan
residents. Fish and the ocean have always sustained our livelihoods and
surrounded our lives.
All five of our sons: David, Johnathan, Andy, Michael, and Neal,
born and raised fishing right here on Kachemak Bay from the end of the
Homer Spit (called Coal Point) next to their Grandparents Earl and Mary
And now the fourth and fifth generation of our fish loving family
tradition goes on, with our grandchildren: Scotty, Axel, Phillip, Chelsea and Cassy putting their time on
board the F/V Time Bandit and working here processing fish at Coal Point
Over the past 40 years we have been busy building and fishing our boats
the F/V Time Bandit, the Bold Ruler, the F/V Sea Wife, Invader, Gertrude
Ann, Sadie Lady, Sukoi Bay, Freedom and the American Way.
We have fished most Alaskan fish and shellfish species in all waters
with most fishing gear types, from Ketchikan to the Bering Sea. We have
also rehabilitated and enhanced all five species of salmon and restored
Salmon runs damaged by the Alaskan earthquake from Noatak to Kodiak..
So after all that fishy
business… to retire… we decided to try another part of the fishing
industry and put together our experience to work and create a process to
capture the wholesome pristine essence of fresh caught wild Alaskan fish
to share with the lower 48 states of America while keeping an eye on the
health of our stocks.
With our principles, we strive to protect Mother Nature’s Wild Run
But wait a minute…Retired did we say? Oh boy! The work involved from
frigid ocean waters to your dinner plate is a task of rigorous step by
step of intense quality control. We take quality to the highest standard
It is such an honor to do our best to produce top of the line seafood to
show what the best of the best in flavor, texture and natural healthy
goodness can provide for you.
From our family to yours it is a pleasure to serve you with the cream of
the crop in Alaskan seafood.
Thank-you for choosing Coal Point’s Seafood ! We really do love fish!
Here’s to your health!
