Greetings from Alaska,
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 Jane Hillstrand

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 Schools.
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!
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 Seafood Company.
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..

Just wanted to send you a thank you for the great halibut! Thank you, Nancy for taking such good care of us and the shipment. It arrived in perfect condition last Friday morning, as promised. We've enjoyed it twice for dinner since then and it was a great birthday present for my husband. We were in Homer in June 2007 and due process the halibut we caught and shipped it to us. Since then, we've ordered from you a couple times and your halibut is the best. Hope all is well with all of you there in Homer and a Coal Point Seafood. We hope to come back to visit soon. Best regards, Mike and Karen, Tennessee
Dear Coal Point,
My husband and I drove up from Seattle and had a wonderful time in Alaska. We stayed in homer a couple of nights and a funky place full of characters. We went to your fish store on this spirit and bought king crab lakes, salmon paddies, and had them at our rental. Your seafood was the best we've ever had! It was delicious! Crab full of natural flavor not salty and the salmon the spices were fantastic! Flavor galore, I really mean it! Thanks so much we will always remember that (best in Alaska) and down the road we will order some seafood to be shipped to us. Thanks again for a great memory and eating delight! Tom and Julie
Hello from Georgia!
Last week we received a gift package from our soon to be "new next door neighbors" who are moving here from Alaska. I've never tasted such yummy fish! I have no idea how to cook halibut or salmon but your recipes gave me confidence to give it a try. Needless to say it was excellent. I think I'm going to have to order more fish. This is definitely better than what passes as fresh at our grocery stores.
Thanks again, Leslie, Marietta, GA
We received our halibut last week and ate the first of it last night. We
caught it outside Homer the second week of August and you packaged, froze, and shipped it to us. Your service was outstanding and the fish arrived in excellent condition.
Thank you, Matt, Fairfax, VA
The 100 pounds of halibut and salmon arrived via Fedex today at 1:00P.M. (Eastern) and was still frozen solid. Please thank your team for doing such a professional job.
Thanks, Bob, Ashland, Mass
I just wanted to let you guys know what a great job you did for us. After a very long and exhausting flight, we arrived in Mobile, Al with both boxes and the fish still frozen rock solid.
Great job guys!
