Fish Profile— Sablefish
All our fish are wild and sustainably caught in Alaska by ourselves and other quality fishermen we know and trust.
We own a small custom processing facility (60 North Seafoods) in Cordova, Alaska. Located right at the source, we immediately clean, cut, portion, wrap in parchment, and flash freeze for premium quality.
Sablefish, also known as black cod
We longline for black cod from spring through fall in the icy Alaskan waters of the Pacific Ocean. These are wild fish that have lived their lifespan in the most pristine ocean waters of Alaska.
To a PNW fisherman, it's called black cod because that's the name on our quota permits and fish tickets. However, when it's sold to consumers, the FDA wants it labeled as sablefish. Since we catch it and sell it, we end up using both names at different times. We label it as sablefish (black cod).
