Wild Alaskan Sablefish – Skin-On, Boneless, 4 Oz Portions (6) – Vital Choice – Seafood Delivery


SKU: 1031-60208H Categories: ,


Known also as black cod or butterfish, sablefish is prized for its intense, sweet flavor and velvety, unctuous texture. Its high oil content is largely comprised of omega-3 fatty acids and helps prevent overcooking. Sablefish owes its richness to what it eats and where it lives, trolling the deepest waters of Alaska, the Bering Sea, and the Pacific Ocean down to California, feasting on the likes of crabs and squid. Please note that due to its delicate flesh, some small bones may still be intact even though the fish has been filleted.

Contains fish. Flash-Frozen is the New Fresh: Much of our seafood comes to you frozen, which means you can enjoy seasonally harvested fish and shellfish any time of the year. Freezing fish rapidly and within hours of catch locks in flavor and freshness, giving us straight-from-the-sea taste without the risk of spoiling. Major advances in rapid-freeze technologies mean seafood can be frozen solid in a matter of seconds, which minimizes damage to cell walls, preserving taste, texture, and moisture levels. The process of freezing seafood has evolved to the point where frozen fish is comparable to—if not better than—fresh. In fact, consumer taste-tests conducted by Oregon State University consistently put frozen seafood on top. Alaska Seafood is Sustainable Seafood: With more than three million lakes, more than 12,000 rivers, and more coastline than the rest of the U. S. put together, Alaskan waters produce some of the planet’s most pure, nutrient-dense seafood. Serving as a model for effective fishery management around the globe, Alaska is the only state in the nation whose constitution mandates that all fisheries be responsibly managed to support continued abundance. And because fish farming is prohibited in Alaska, you can always be certain Alaskan seafood is wild. Marine Stewardship Council: The MSC is a global nonprofit organization that works with scientists, fisheries, industry experts, and other nonprofits to improve the way our oceans are fished. In the MSC program, sustainable seafood means that it was fished from stocks with healthy populations, with minimal impact on the environment, and in an area with effective, responsible management. When you see the MSC blue fish label on a Vital Choice product, you can be confident it comes from a certified sustainable source, one that is helping to combat mislabeling and seafood fraud. Our MSC chain of custody certification number is MSC-C-50265. Marine Omega-3s: Omega-3 fatty acids are found in seafood, livestock, and some plants, but seafood is the only concentrated source of two types that are vital for human health: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) . | Wild Alaskan Sablefish – Skin-On, Boneless Boneless, 4 Oz Portions (6)
