The Greater Seattle area continues to benefit from the charity of Duke’s Chowder House. Duke Moscrip expands efforts to support sustainable seafood, with the help of Long Live the Kings (LLTK) and Nootka Marine Adventures for the First Annual Salmon VIP Fishing Derby.

Long Live The Kings - Annual Fishing Derby

Participants enjoy world-class fishing and luxury accommodations while competing against LLTK's most generous supporters for more than $25,000 in prizes.

Duke’s Chowder House, a chain of family-owned sustainable seafood restaurants in the Seattle area, joins Long Live the Kings, (LLTK), a nonprofit committed to recovering wild salmon and steelhead in the Pacific Northwest, in presenting the First Annual VIP Salmon Fishing Derby. The Derby will run from June 18-21, 2016 on British Columbia's beautiful Esperanza Inlet, hosted by Nootka Marine Adventures at the new Newton Cove Resort, exclusive fishing lodge on Vancouver Island.

To enter, competitors pay $5,000 plus transport costs. $2,500 of the $5,000 goes directly to benefit LLTK. In return, Duke guarantees chowder for one year at any of the six Duke’s Chowder House locations (valued at $10,000 when chowder is eaten twice per day). Included with entry is a copy of the official Duke’s Chowder House cookbook, "As Wild As It Gets . . . Duke’s Secret Sustainable Seafood Recipes."

The Derby’s goal is to fund the work of LLTK, namely, figure out why juvenile salmon and steelhead are dying and how to multiply and recover endangered salmon and steelhead populations in the Salish Sea and the Pacific Northwest.

Participants enjoy world-class fishing and luxury accommodations while competing against LLTK's most generous supporters for more than $25,000 in prizes. Moreover, the Derby presents a splendid opportunity: Washington's most influential environmentalists will become better acquainted, experience fantastic fishing in an iconic northwest setting, and to reassert a life-long commitment to salmon and steelhead restoration.

The Derby is limited to 40 fishers.
