About the Fish

Since 2008, Kyuquot Sound Sablefish has graced some of the world’s most prestigious gatherings and most exquisite restaurants. The fish are island-grown and the farm is locally-owned. Committed to sustaining a healthy environment and community, the farm has a strong partnership with the Kyuquot First Nations. In the Nuu-Chah-Nulth language “Kyuquot” means “different people,” which is a symbol for their unique and different approach to sablefish aquaculture.

Taste Notes & Characteristics This is a premium white fish known for its large petal-like flakes as much as its rich, buttery flavor. Versatile, this sashimi-grade, naturally- raised sablefish is sought after by world-class chefs, both multi-Michelin starred continental-style chefs and Japanese chefs, from Paris to New York to Tokyo. Sablefish can be used in all types of culinary preparations; however, one of the characteristics of this particular fish is that Wheeler Seafood delivers black cod that is also sashimi-grade.
