About Us

Schoolhouse Fish Co. is brought to you by Eric Grundberg, Malena Marvin, Keeja the dog, and the F/V Happy Time. Eric has been fishing commercially from his home in Petersburg, Alaska for over a decade. He trolls for salmon, longlines for halibut (and comes up with rockfish and lingcod too!), and works with friends to bring herring roe-on-kelp and sea cucumber to specialty food markets. 

The Schoolhouse Fish Co. pairs Eric's experience harvesting quality seafood with Malena's desire to create sustainable solutions for Southeast Alaska. By direct marketing our fish, we can catch fewer fish at a higher price per pound and you get amazing salmon that you can trace right back to its source. 

FIshing our values

Schoolhouse Fish Co. is part of a wave of Alaskan entrepreneurs crafting businesses based on values. By keeping more of our fish revenues in our community, prioritizing craftsmanship over volume, and giving 1% for salmon, we're doing our best to pay it forward to future generations of fish and fishing families.

Isn't it special?

OUR SCHOOLHOUSE

We're the proud owners and stewards of the Pt. Agassiz Schoolhouse, an historic Alaskan schoolhouse from the 1920s situated on the glacial forelands across Frederick Sound from Petersburg. Originally built for schooling farm kids from families homesteading at Pt. Agassiz, the schoolhouse also spent many decades traveling the seas on floats to house the Reid Bros. family at their logging camps throughout the archipelago. We are known to skiff over to the schoolhouse from Petersburg, make a fire in the wood stove, gaze out the schoolhouse's big windows, sip tea and coffee, and plan out our 2 hundred million projects. 

Southeast Alaska, paradise on earth

We love the misty mountains, crazy glaciers, and jade seas of our remote, archipelago home more than words can describe. We are deeply thankful for our friends and family in Petersburg and around Southeast Alaska. We feel quite lucky to make a life in the most beautiful place on earth!
