From our cold, clear open Alaskan waters, to our wild, small-boat line-caught catch, to your table . . . our fish are something special.
Actively feeding and frolicking in their natural habitat, all of Catch Sitka’s fish are wild caught, using the same traditional hook & line methods our artisanal small boat fleet of fisherfolk have been using for generations, in our pristine Southeast Alaska ocean waters.
We invite you to learn the secrets of the truly sustainable magnificent fish we bring with pride to your table. All of our fish is sashimi-grade, kosher (unsupervised by a Rabbi), and parve.
Catch Sitka's Black Cod are deep cold-water caught prized for their flavor. They are not actually a cod fish at all, but are what's known as a Sablefish. They are sometimes called Butter Fish as well because it quite literally melts in your mouth. It has the highest concentration of Omega-3's and is impossible to overcook. We think it's a treat you won't soon forget!
