SABLE FISH / BLACK COD

SABLE FISH / BLACK COD

Sablefish feed on fish, worms and crustaceans. They live over soft ocean bottoms in deep water from the Bering Sea to Isla Cedros, Baja California. These streamlined fish are slate black to a greenish color on the top surface, shading to lighter gray on the belly. They range up to 40 pounds, but average approximately 8 pounds. They are particularly suited for smoking because of their moderately high fat content and rich oily flavor.
