Welcome, we are Bill and Lori Webber and we own and operate Paradigm Seafoods, LLC. As an Alaskan-based, high-end harvester and purveyor of wild Alaskan Copper River salmon, we build long-term relationships and connections with source-conscious buyers.The 2020 Copper River season will mark Bill's 53rd year as a salmon harvester in the Copper River Delta fishery. He first started fishing in a 22-foot cabin skiff in the late 60’s and has successively graduated with the times into incrementally bigger and better boats. Bill has, for the most part, seen and done it all out on the Copper River delta. He has learned many skill sets along the way, having also owned and operated a marine design and manufacturing company in the off-season.
The harvester-direct business model Bill has been developing for the past 20 years has been a lot of fun and an exciting journey. As we continue to develop this model, Bill continues to adopt new quality standards and tools that improve the premium salmon products that our customers receive and showcase.
We use a total “Lead-by-Example” and “Total-Quality” approach in our business and enjoy sharing the knowledge Bill has learned on this road less traveled in Alaska’s salmon fisheries. The freedom to chart our own course into an ever-changing marketplace has afforded some unique insights that leave Bill thinking - we harvesters can do this! The marketplace appreciates the personal "connect" and level of quality we produce as well as our story.
We are confident that you will see the differences in our salmon, as a result of the leading edge innovations we are making in harvesting and processing. We embrace the one constant in life, “CHANGE” and understand if “we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always got”. That's not good enough for us, our customers or their businesses.
In our view, a healthy rural Alaskan fishing economy starts with the fishing family. Welcome to our salmon world, we hope to fish for you on the next tide.
Your personal fisherman, Bill & Lori Webber
