Black cod / Sablefish

Sablefish are extremely long-lived, some reaching over 90 years of age.

Sablefish is highly prized for its intensely rich, buttery flavour – hence the nickname “butterfish” – and for its surprisingly delicate texture. This fish contains more omega-3 than salmon or tuna. Their high fat content provides a rich flavour and velvety texture, making sablefish perfect for smoking.

Although commonly called “black cod,” this deep-sea fish, which can live up to 5,000 feet (1,500 metres) below the sea, is not part of the cod family. Sablefish inhabit shelf and deep-sea waters from central Baja California to Japan and the Bering Sea.
