Floating sea pens, Canada
It is difficult to find wild sablefish here in the US because the bulk of the US catch is exported to Japan. Where it is available, it is hugely expensive. We believe that Kyuquot Sound farmed sablefish gives its wild cousin a run for the money.
Kyuquot Sound sablefish are raised in partnership with First Nations peoples. The sablefish are fed an FAO-certified organic feed and are harvested using a Japanese method that reduces stress on the fish. Further, the company raises shellfish and kelp downstream. One filters the waste and the other purifies the water.
Despite its common name (black cod), sablefish is not a member of the codfish family and cooks differently from cod. Its high fat content makes it both flavorful and very forgiving when cooked. Sablefish is also high in polyunsaturated fat, perfect for low-cholesterol diets. It has milky white flesh and a buttery texture. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

Gill-net or trawl
If you can't make it to Nantucket for a seaside lobster roll, here is your opportunity to save money and experience the next best thing: monkfish "lobster" rolls. Monkfish is also good in risotto, stews, braised, or bacon-wrapped and baked.
Once widely considered a "trash" fish, monkfish looks positively prehistoric. Its huge, gaping mouth and hideous teeth are complemented by an odd-looking, dangling apparatus on its head that some say looks like a fishing pole and bait. Its tail though is "seafood gold," with a texture and density similar to that of lobster. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level.

Ingredients: Salt, spices, dehydrated onion and garlic.
We are selling this product because a dietician recommended it for a friend with heart issues. It contains only salt, spices, and dehydrated onion and garlic, and it is the secret ingredient that some say makes Gibsons steaks so good. Because it is a healthy alternative to straight kosher salt, we wanted to try it.
The verdict? Gibsons proved to be excellent on fish too!
