Sablefish (more commonly known as black cod) is the responsible alternative to Chilean sea bass.
Sablefish, aka Black Cod, exists only in the North Pacific. It is highly sought after by foreign markets and chefs internationally due to its buttery texture and large flake. Part of the same ground fish fishery as Pacific halibut, sablefish is caught by bottom longlines employed by small local boats close to shore. There is little to no by-catch. The fishery operates from March until October. The quality on the frozen product in winter is almost indistinguishable from the fresh season (it’s that good).
