Food Information:

THE FISHERY - From small fishing villages along the northern part of the Baja Peninsula, day boat fishermen set out in small wooden Pangas for a day of hand lining and scallop diving. The honor of tradition and familial unity are drivers in this amazing Day Boat program. Hauling Baqueta, Snapper, Giant Black Bass, Wild Yellowtail, hand harvested Scallops, and hand netted Shrimp to San Diego gives a unique opportunity to share pristine seafood and a warm history with our customers.

THE FISH - White Sea bass are very large members of the Pacific Croaker/Drum Family. Applications in cooking would mirror Wild Striped Bass, Redfish, Corvina, and Toothfish. Large loose flakes lend to a silky texture and a very mild ocean flavor. This is not a "FISHY" fish, but it does have a mild complexity that separates it from species like Groupers and Snappers.
Ceviche, Saute, Grill, Broil.
