Sablefish is commonly known as butterfish due to its soft texture, delicate flakes and rich buttery taste. These characteristics can be contributed to its high levels of healthy fatty acids. It has been consumed as a delicacy in Japan for many years and is now making its way onto the local market. Sablefish are found in muddy seabeds at depths of up to 9,000 feet and prefer the edge of the continental shelf. They are opportunistic hunters who like to feed on other fish, squid and even jellyfish. Sablefish mature early and have a long lifespan (up to 90 years).

Sablefish’s buttery, rich and flakey texture make it a great substitute for other impact fish, such as the Chilean Seabass. It is a very well managed fish with its population numbers well into the healthy range. When they are caught using fishing methods such as traps or bottom set lines, they have minimal bycatch and environmental impacts.

Bocaccio is a large species of rockfish that is found ranging from Alaska down to Baja California. As their name in Italian suggests, they can be easily identified by their large mouths. The adult color ranges from a reddish hue to brown and once they are caught and brought to the surface their color tends to brighten to a stronger red hue. Juvenile Bocaccio tend to stay together in loose schools and spend most of their time in shallower water. After about two years of age they begin to descend into deeper water of up to 750 feet near a deep, rocky environment. Bocaccio enjoy an colorful diet of many difference species of fish as well as squid and crustaceans.

Females begin to mature when they reach 17 inches long and they typically grow larger than the males and have a longer lifespan. Fertilization takes place internally within the females body and she holds the developing young until they are ready to hatch as live larvae. Hatching occurs during the months of December through April with the females being capable of hatching 1.5 millions eggs per cycle. Bocaccio can live to be 50 years old, are slow growing and late to mature making which puts them endanger if over fished as their populations take time to recover.


Mushroom Medley Species: Yellowfoot (Craterellus tubaeformis) Hedgehog (Hydnum umbilicatum) Harvest Date: 03/01/2020 Forager: Lukas Vrana Location: Mendocino County Harvest Method: Hand Harvested Share Size: Full Share 1 lb Half Share 0.5 lbs

Hedgehog are found from the central coast of California up to British Columbia and have a mycorrhizal relationship with Live Oaks and sometimes conifers. This type of relationship benefits both the tree and the fungal as they exchange nutrients between the two of them They are among the few species of mushrooms that have a toothed hymenophore, as opposed to gills. Their caps have a soft peach color with a convexed and dented inner margin. Hedgehog’s have a unique earthy and nutty flavor with a mild peppery taste.

Yellowfoot mushrooms are a member of the Chanterelle family and have a mycorrhizal relationship with several species of conifer. They are found scattered on rotten conifer wood, moss and soil usually during the wet months of January and February, which gives them their nickname Winter Chanterelle. They have a trumpet shaped flowering body that ranges in color from brown to saffron yellow. Their cap is convexed with wide spaced gills becoming hollow in the center and tapering down to a long, thin stipe. They have a delicate and slightly fruity aroma with a soft, moist flesh.
