Black Cod Fishing
Alaska Black Cod Fishing
Highly Prized for its Rich, Buttery Taste
Black Cod (Sablefish)
Sablefish, commonly referred to as black cod, is a deep water fish found in the muddy sea beds of the North Pacific once. Black cod are caught in depths ranging from 700-3000 feet of water. Because of such extreme depths, black cod were once only available to the commercial fishery by means of long longing and pots. With the use of electric reels, we have now made it possible to catch black cod sport fishing in Sitka, Alaska.
Best Tasting Fish in the World
There would be no point to target black cod if it didn't taste awesome. Black cod, aka the butterfish, is highly prized for an incredibly rich, melt-in-your-mouth buttery taste and delicate texture. It's what you would be serving at a gourmet restaurant. The fillet of a black cod is a pure snow white color with large delicate flakes. The fillets have a high oil content and. can be prepared many ways - including grilling, smoking, frying, or served as sushi. Black cod store a lot of fat (omega-3's) because of their long lives in the deep, frigid, waters of Alaska. The highest fat content of any white meat fish in the Pacific Ocean makes black cod very healthy. Black cod tips are considered the prime cut, almost similar to the filet mignon of a tenderloin.
