True CodTrue Cod
Alaskan fixed gear (pot or line-caught) True Cod (Gadus macrocephalus) is a delicate, mild, flaky, environmentally sustainable alternative to such species as haddock, Atlantic cod, flounder, and dabs. This MSC certified fishery is closely monitored by the state, and like so many others in Alaska, is regulated by a series of "openings" throughout the year, with painstaking attention paid to the landings to assure the future of both the species and the fishery.

Product Form:   Fresh - Fillets 8-16 oz
    Frozen – Shatterpack Fillets 16-32 oz.

Dungeness CrabDungeness Crab
We picked the Oregon Dungeness Crab (Cancer magister) due to the exceptional management of the resource. A low bycatch trap fishery with minimal habitat issues, where only males are taken. Dungeness Crab is considered by many to be the most sustainably managed crab fishery in the world.

Product Form:  
Fresh - Meat 1, 3 & 5 lb. units
   
Wholecooked,1.5-4 lbs.

HalibutHalibut
Our Halibut (Hippoglossus stenoplesis) comes from the MSC certified, healthy and well-managed stocks of the Alaska long-line fishery. There are minimal bycatch and habitat issues associated with this fishery. It is a strictly managed quota system, with concerned Alaska longliners taking the admirable step of requesting regulations requiring devices to minimize the by-catch of Albatross.

MahimahiMahimahi
EcoFish Mahimahi comes from the South American handline fishery (a line held by hand near surface with a few hooks), where local villagers fish in small open day boats. Handline is very selective, thereby avoiding the otherwise common bycatch (catching untargeted species) on longlines (hundreds of hooks below surface) of shark and turtles. Also known as Dorado, these fish are widespread and abundant because they are efficient reproducers and grow very rapidly.

Product Form:   Frozen– 4-8 lb. skin on loins

MusselsMussels
Our Blue Mussels (Mytilus edulis) are all rope grown in Washington state. Shipped live, in five and ten pound increments, these mussels have a rich, sweet flavor and a meaty texture. In addition to being completely environmentally sustainable, our mussels are virtually dirt, sand, and grit free, a result of the grow-out method, which suspends the mussels in the water column, above the sea floor.

Product Form:   Fresh – 5 & 10 lb. increments

back to top

OystersOysters
EcoFish's oysters (Crassostrea gigas) come from suspension culture farms that sometimes finish them on the beach to harden the shells. Suspension aquaculture is sustainable because the seafloor is not disturbed in harvesting by habitat destroying dredges. Our oysters are the Pacific oyster, which is the most widely cultured oyster in the world. They are sold under a variety of names, usually denoting their growing area. EcoFish features live Kumamoto, Penn Cove, Yaquina Bay, Olympia, Snow Creek, Washington Belon and Evening Cove varieties. We also offer shucked oysters in convenient 1/2 gallon tubs.

The Pacific oyster is popular to farm because it is an extremely hearty animal that is simple to propagate, and its mild flavor is highly prized. It is deep cupped, with a medium brine and a clean crisp flavor. A great starter oyster because of its small to medium size.

Product Form:   Live, sold by the dozen

pollockPollock
EcoFish's Pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) come from the Gulf of Alaska and are certified as sustainable to the standard of the MSC. Pollock are mostly fished using mid-water trawling gear. Pollock reach sexual maturity at an early age and produce large numbers of young - traits that help them withstand high levels of fishing.

SablefishSablefish
EcoFish Sablefish (Anoplopoma Fimbria) is also commonly called Black Cod, or Alaskan Butterfish. Our Sablefish comes from the MSC Certified Alaskan offshore deep water longline fleet. This is a relatively small fishery, and like the Alaskan longline Halibut fishery it is a well managed quota based system. The vast majority of this prized fish are exported to Japan. The high Omega-3 fat content of Sablefish gives it a beautifully rich flavor with large white flakes. A fantastic substitute for the endangered Chilean Seabass.

SalmonWild Alaskan Salmon
EcoFish Wild Alaskan Salmon was chosen because they are MSC Certified, abundant, their habitat is intact and their fisheries are well managed. Salmon that return to rivers in Alaska are abundant because the rivers are clean and healthy and able to sustain salmon eggs and young salmon. Seasonally we offer 4 different species of fresh Alaskan salmon. To cover gaps in the fresh seasons we also have a variety of frozen forms, ranging from frozen at sea whole fish to individually vacuum packed portions, to meet the needs of any chef.

King Salmon or Chinook
King Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawtscha ) is the largest of the 5 Alaskan species. Kings are highly prized by chefs for their rich fat content, deep red color and firm textured flesh. They are distinguished by their dark gums, spotted blue-green backs, silver sides, and black spots covering the entire tail. Roughly 10% of Kings exhibit an ivory flesh color rather than the characteristic red flesh tone. These are known as "Ivories" or "Whites" and typically command a higher market price.

Product Form:  
Fresh - Whole H&G, 11-18, 18+ lbs.
  Fillets 3.5-5 lbs.
   
Frozen - FAS (frozen at sea) whole fish & vac pack sides

Sockeye Salmon
Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) is prized for it's very dark red meat. Sockeyes have bright, blue tinged, silver skins with minimal spotting. Sockeyes, unlike Kings, are caught almost exclusively with purse seine nets. Fresh fish are available June through September. Chefs appreciate sockeyes for their rich fat content, second only to Kings, their color retention through the cooking process, and their firm texture.

Product Form:  
Fresh - Whole H&G, 6-9 lbs.
  Fillets 3-4 lbs.
   
Frozen - FAS (frozen at sea) whole fish & vac pack sides

Coho Salmon
Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) are also known as silver salmon due to their metallic silver-blue coloration on their sides and belly. These fish spawn later in the summer than either the Kings or Sockeyes. The season typically runs from July through October. Fish are caught either by trolling or in nets. Coho are leaner than the Kings or Sockeyes though have a nice flavor. Flesh is typically lighter in color and softer in texture than either the Kings or Sockeyes.

ScallopsScallops
EcoFish Bay Scallops come from China, where they are raised in open ocean "lantern nets", suspended in the water column. Our scallops are sustainable because they are grown off the sea floor, no feed is required (they're filter feeders) and problems associated with many wild scallop fisheries are avoided - overfishing, by-catch (the incidental capture of other species) and serious habitat damage during harvest.

Our frozen scallops are shucked and individually quick frozen. The scallops are "dry," meaning no preservatives or additives have been applied (unlike the industry standard of adding phosphates to preserve "freshness.")

ShrimpShrimp
EcoFish offers three different varieties of Shrimp.

EcoFish Spot Shrimp (Pandalus platyceros) are sustainable because they come from an abundant habitat-friendly, low bycatch, trap fishery in Alaska. One of the largest shrimp, they can reach lengths of 7 inches. A great alternative to other wild shrimp fisheries which are known to catch and discard 4-10 lbs. of unwanted marine life for every pound of shrimp kept! This sweet and flavorful shrimp has great taste and texture that is similar to lobster. Extremely perishable, this shrimp is primarily available frozen. Available in a variety of sizes, fresh are occasionally brought to market from October to March. Frozen are available year round.

Product Form:   Frozen – 31-40 tails, Frozen 2 lb. box

EcoFish Pink Shrimp (Pandalus jordani) come from Oregon. This wild fishery is certified sustainable to the Marine Stewardship Council's environmental standard. The abundant resource is harvested with trawls, which normally have bycatch and habitat destruction issues in other fisheries. This fishery is the rare exception because bycatch is avoided through the use of bycatch reduction devices, which have been mandatory in Oregon since April 2003. The fishery is conducted during the daylight hours when shrimp are congregated near the bottom.

Product Form:   Frozen – 250/350 IQF, 5 lb. bag

EcoFish White Shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) are raised organically in an eco-friendly state-of-the-art aquaculture facility in Ecuador. The eco-friendly farm utilizes crystal-clear river water direct from the Andes Mountains. Naturally raised according to Naturland organic standards without added chemicals, antibiotics, genetic modifications or pollution.

Product Form:   Frozen – 31/40, shell on, raw, IQF

SquidSquid
EcoFish sources its squid (Loligo opalescens) from the California purse seine (encircling nets) fishery. This is a uniformly well-managed fishery with healthy populations and minimal bycatch. The short life span, rapid growth, early maturity and year-round spawning make squid able to withstand relatively heavy fishing. Fishers work at night in the Bay using bright lights that attract the squid and then encircle them with nets.

EcoFish's high quality precut squid has been met with great praise. Squid has increasingly gained enormous popularity among U.S. consumers. It has a colorful culinary history, is inexpensive and extremely versatile.

TunaTuna

Albacore Tuna
EcoFish Albacore comes from the abundant U.S. West Coast troll fishery, where the bycatch of dolphins and turtles is not an issue. Very high in Omega 3's, our Albacore has a moist meaty flavor and a clean fresh taste. EcoFish albacore is an excellent alternative to some other tuna species which may be overfished or be caught with gear that has bycatch issues.
