Alaskan Black Cod - Sablefish
Alaska's Savory (and Healthy) Seafood Secret
Would you like to have healthy younger looking skin, a better memory, increased cardiovascular health, or even smarter children? These may sound like voodoo promises offered on a late-night infomercial, but they're not. So what is the miracle product that promises these fountain-of-youth-like benefits? Hint: Think Alaskan fish loaded with Omega 3's...
Most Alaska seafood connoisseurs, if asked to name the fish with the highest level of ultra-healthy long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids might name a fish like Alaskan King Salmon. While this is a close guess, most people not intimately familiar with lesser known Alaskan fish species may not have even heard of the "big fish" at the top of the Omega 3 totem pole. The correct answer: Alaskan Black Cod (Sablefish).
Most Americans wouldn't be able to tell you anything about this heart-healthy fish which is also known as Sablefish. The likely reason; the majority of the buttery white-fleshed Alaskan black cod has, for many years, been exported to Japan to satiate Asian fish connoisseurs that have long held it in high regard. Most commercially marketed sablefish is harvested by long-line. This method of fishing yields relatively little discarded by-catch, enabling a healthy fishery that targets a steady population of these valuable Alaskan fish. In fact, the Alaska long-line fishery for sablefish has earned the coveted "sustainable fishery" status by the Marine Stewardship Council.
