What happened to Port Chatham/Portlock, providers of seafood?

I used to buy great hunks of cured copper river salmon from this little place in Fremont near a city transformer station. They had a case of various smoked fish and it was always crowded with locals and tourist. Then they upgraded and moved to a spiffy place near the locks in Ballard. The amount of smoked fish that was not canned or 'boxed' dropped, but I was still able to get some great smoked salmon. It has been years since I've bought from them. Now I need to get some great local smoked salmon to send back to the east coast. I have checked their web page and the offerings are dismal and not what I remember. What happened? And any suggestions on where to go? I need a place that will pack and ship a couple days before the party. Thanks!
