THE FISHERY - Just south of Tallahassee, in the heart of Florida’s “Big Bend” region, is the port City of St Marks. This fishing community boasts that they are the oldest city in the Country (St. Augustine contests...). Here we've partnered with a family that has fished Apalachee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico for six generations. With the highest level of pride, they harvest local Gag Grouper, American Red Snapper, Octopus, Black Bass and the world-renowned Stone Crab Claw. We distribute this magnificent product around the globe, next day air.

THE FISH - Wild Cobia are typically caught larger than 20 lbs. The Rich yet Firm Texture is a delicacy in "steaky" fish. It has the firmness and "fat" content of Sturgeon and is as versatile as the imagination will allow. The Wild Cobia eat eel and swimmer cab. This allows for a sweet and complex flavor that is comparable to nothing else. In the early part of the year Cobia have a intramuscular "fat" content that mirrors your favorite pork.
