Benefits of Wild Caught Fish

Posted On: February 18, 2015

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fish is a wonderful way to incorporate more nutrient dense foods into your diet. But did you know that not all fish are created equal? We take extreme care to make sure that our beef is 100% sources ethically and sustainably –  and we do the same for our sea food.

Sustainable fishing means catching our seafood responsibly and with great thought, with great attention to the health of our environment and the people whose livelihood depend on the long term effects of said environment.

Farmed fish may have a lower price point per pound, but wild caught fish has nutritional benefits that out weight the cost. Take salmon an as an example: wild caught has fewer calories,  higher levels of iron and potassium and nearly half the fat of farmed salmon. Farmed salmon are also raised in cages and fed soy products, hurting their their nutritional value.

Our new Alaskan seafood comes from Kodiak, located in the center of one of the earth’s richest supply of sustainable wild seafood. We take pride in our seafood and love using our products for healthy and nutritioous dinners at home. Interested in a quick recipe? Try our Wild Caught Sablefish Caprese or our Pacific Cod with Salmon Tartare and Onion Compote, Mousseline Sauce.
