Starbird Fish Co. Wild Pacific Cod - Frozen
Starbird Fish brings this Pacific Cod from the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska. Compared to Atlantic Cod, the flavor is mild and savory, with a firm flake.
Enjoy within 5 days or freeze for later use.
We ship this fish frozen. To thaw fish that has been frozen, place in a sealed bag in a bowl of cool water. Allow a day to thaw prior to cooking.
Pacific Cod ranges from southern California to the Bering Straight. Starbird works with a fleet in the Bering Sea, to sustainably harvest Pacific Cod with hook and line.
Captain Anthony of Starbird, and his crew of Vermont fishermen, brave the elements of Alaska's seas to bring you some of the highest quality fish in the world. Harvested June through October, these fish feast on zooplankton, small adult fishes, and oceanic invertebrates. It is filleted and frozen within hours of catch and brought to Vermont for us to enjoy the rest of the year.
After fish are caught, Tony of Starbird keeps them in a -20°F freezer! This extends it's shelf life for up to 3 years. Frozen foods degrade faster the warmer the freeze, so keeping this frozen at such a cold temperture helps to maintain the quality until the next harvest comes in from Alaska. Most household freezers are in the 8-20 degree range.
A note on bones: This cod has been filleted by hand so as to maintain the integrity of the cut - mechanical filleting machines have a tendency to shred the fish. Due to this hand process you may still find bones in the fish.
