Food Information:

THE FISHERY - Pot Trap catches in Northern California ensure the highest quality fish. Spiny Lobster pots are converted to Black Cod rigs and set for overnight captures. A non evasive and humane catch method give this program a very "Sustainable" reputation.

THE FISH - Live catch methods produce a very firm flesh when fresh and a beautiful cooked product. "Fat" levels of the Black Cod ensure delicate, moist, and mild dishes. The firmness is that of Halibut with a gorgeous flake. The Black Cod lends itself to multitude of cooking applications and is a great "sponge" for marinades and brines.
