Commercial Salmon Gillnetting


Here's a link to the Bristol Bay Forecasts and other useful info from the UW. (There's more links on our links page and on our Naknek page.)

We sell the Momoi  brand of gillnetting, but can special order others.

We sell gear for all major commercial fisheries in Alaska including Bristol Bay, False Pass, Port Moller, Sand Point, Cook Inlet, Prince William Sound, and Southeast Alaska. Of course, we sell the most popular sizes and colors for each of the areas.

Color samples are loading at the bottom of this page.

Gillnetting is also available for Washington, Oregon, and California fisheries. Any gillnetting can be special ordered from the factory with a minimum of 90 days for delivery. The following styles are available:
