My white fish sampler is 5 lbs. of the two best white fish Alaska has to offer––moist, sweet, and delicate halibut, and rich, flakey sablefish. If you can't decide whether to get halibut or sablefish, get my white fish sampler and try both.

While the vast majority of halibut available around the country is from large, tough fish, I only keep the smaller fish that are both delicious and a more sustainable size. My halibut is sweet and moist unlike anything you've had before. Many folks have not had sablefish and I take great pleasure in introducing it to them. Why? Because they cannot believe they have never had it before! It's fatty and flakey and its unlike any other white fish you've ever had before!

Who, Where, when, & How:

When it comes to the white fish I sell, both species, halibut and sablefish, are sourced from friends in Kodiak and Southeast, Alaska. Although I commercially fished halibut for years in my youth, it's something I now leave to my tougher friends.

      A thing or two about halibut:

      • Baby halibut swim vertically in the water column with one eye on each side of their head. As they mature, they settle to the bottom and one eye migrates to the other side of their head. This is called orbital migration. As adults they rest flat on the bottom with both eyes on the top.
      • Nearly all halibut have both eyes on the right-hand side of the fish. About 1 in every 20,000 halibut has its eyes on the left side. I got one once and in my overworked delirium, I stopped and stared at it for about 5 minutes before I could proceed with filleting. We call them left handed halibut.

      A thing or two about sablefish:

      • Salmon are known to eat baby sablefish. Salmon have great taste!
      • Sablefish fisheries are managed by both state and federal agencies.
