Specialty Rockfish

$20.00

Our favorite! Wild-caught from California to the Aleutian Islands, Rockfish is a common, medium-firm fish with a flaky, mild texture that can be cooked in a variety of ways. It can be poached, fried, pan-seared, grilled, steamed, & even eaten raw.

With a hint of sweetness, Rockfish is savory & versatile—and can be substituted for WNY’s favorite Haddock—really shines in in everything from fish tacos to ceviche, soups, & beyond.

 

Our fish are harvested using low-impact gear types and we handle them one by one. By purchasing this product, you are directly impacting the livelihood of small-boat fishing families.
