Is It Wild or Farmed? Black Cod is wild caught.
Where is it fished? Black Cod is a migratory species that can be found throughout the Northeastern Pacific from Mexico to Alaska, with the highest concentrations in Alaska. The Black Cod The Lobster Place procures is primarily landed in Alaska.
How is it fished? Black Cod is fished commercially through the use of long lines.
Is it sustainable? Black Cod populations are considered to be abundant and healthy due to sound fisheries management. Fisheries in Alaska are managed using individual fishing quotas, which assigns a quota to individuals, and seeks to provide ownership of the resource to Alaskan communities providing an incentive to limit overfishing. In addition, fishing methods employed, such as bottom long lining and pots, have relatively low by-catch.
