Species: Sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria)

Catch Date: 6/09/2020

Boat: F/V Sea Harvest

Captain: Calder Deyerle & Walter Deyerle

Port: Moss Landing

Catch Method: Bottom Set Line

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Share Size : Full Share 1.25 lbs

Fillets will be skin on and have some small pin bones

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.


Whole & Cleaned Anchovies

Species: Northern Anchovies (Engraulis mordax)

Catch Date: 6/09/2020

Boat: F/V Mya Nicole

Captain: Eric

Port: San Francisco

Catch Method: Drum Seine

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Northern anchovies are a small, short lived bait fish that play a huge role in the ecosystem here in the Monterey Bay. They are identified by their small bodies, short snout and large mouths. They are found nearshore where they form dense schools that can number in the tens of thousands and can be seen from shore being feasted on by many of the most beloved marine species in the Monterey Bay including migratory whales, dolphins and sea lions. Fresh anchovies have a soft flesh with a moderate yet subtle flavor. Although they are known for their extreme salitiess, this actually comes from the curing process, not the actual taste of the fish.

Anchovies have a short lifespan (no more than 4 years) and have a high reproductive output. They spawn throughout the year with females releasing eggs every 2-4 days and eggs hatching within two days. This high reproductive output ensures an abundant amount of fish each year. The fishing methods for Anchovies allows for minimal bycatch and they are considered a well managed species.


Whole Squid

Species: Market Squid (Doryteuthis opalescens)

Catch Date: 6/09/2020

Boat: F/V King Phillip

Captain: Joe Russo

Port: Moss Landing

Catch Method: Purse Seine

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Market Squid has been fished in the Monterey Bay for over 150 years and still to this day is one of its largest fisheries, due to their abundance and unique lifecycle. When the squid are about two months old they begin to form large schools and become active hunters preying upon fish, crabs and other mollusks. They must eat quick since their lifespan only last for about a year. Once they reach a year old, thousands of squid will migrate into the Monterey Bay where the male delivers a sperm pack to the female who will then deposit hundreds of eggs onto the sandy, muddy bottom before both the male and female die. This short lifespan and high reproductive output make squid a good sustainable seafood choice. Squid meat is firm and white with a mild flavor. It is extremely versatile and works great for a variety of cooking methods as well as raw. You can even add the ink to pasta or rice dishes for a unique and delicious umami flavor.

Their sheer abundance, naturally short life span and early maturity age make Market Squid an excellent sustainable seafood choice since these factors make them less susceptible to the pressures of fishing. They are caught at night using large lights that attract and concentrate the school before a purse seine encircles the school and hauls them aboard. Market squid caught in California are rated a Good Alternative by Monterey Bay Seafood Watch due to limited information on the fishery. By-catch in the fishery is low but concerns over squid egg capture and a general lack of science and management make the picture incomplete.



Species: Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Catch Date: 6/09/2020

Farm: McFarland Springs

Location: Susanville, CA

Farming Method: Spring Fed Raceway, 100% Vegetarian Feed

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Share Size: Full Share 1.25 lbs

Fillets will be skin on and have some small pin bones

Rainbow Trout are a species of salmonid native to the West Coast of North America. Commonly referred to as Steelhead, Rainbow Trout are anadromous, meaning they are capable of moving back and forth from the river to the ocean then back again to the river to spawn (sometimes several times throughout their lives). They have a delicate texture, medium flake and a flavor similar to wild salmon.

Sustainability: McFarland Springs is leading the aquaculture industry in sustainability by utilizing 100% pure vegetarian feed made with red algae. They have eliminated antibiotics and all other medicines from their diet as well. Most farmed fish (eg. Salmon and Prawns) have a bad rap for good reasons, they are fed a diet that contains large amounts of antibiotics as well as fishmeal which is produced from wild fish stocks. This practice of catching wild fish to feed farmed fish in inefficient and unsustainable. Fish farming practices also degrade wild habitat by polluting local waters with effluent, medicines and other additives.
