Each year, Polo Grill sources different types of salmon from each of the distinct rivers that have “Salmon Runs” found up and down the coast of Oregon and Alaska. These different types of salmon are the King Salmon (also known as Chinook), Sockeye Salmon, Coho Salmon and Ivory King Salmon (a type of white fleshed King Salmon).
Salmon fishing is an important part of the Pacific Northwest economy.
Salmon has sustained human communities for generations, fueling entire ecosystems as they swim 1,000 miles upstream to hatch and lay their eggs, says General Manager Michael Funk.
