Sablefish are prized for their rich, buttery texture and melt-in-your-mouth texture, especially in Asia, where they are held in the highest culinary esteem. Whether marinated in kasu (sake lees), simply grilled on the barbecue or delicately cold smoked over alder chips, sablefish is a uniquely delicious seafood that your customers will enjoy again and again.


Most black cod are caught in Alaskan waters, however we also work with black cod from the Washington coast and Quinault Pride Seafoods of the Quinault Nation. All of the sablefish landed by fishermen at Quinault Pride Seafoods are caught individually with hook-and-line, assuring you of only the highest quality product. Pacific Northwest sablefish is a well managed resource and it is an excellent choice for environmentally-conscious chefs seeking an alternative to Chilean sea bass. Sablefish is one of the richest fish in healthful omega-3 fatty acids.
