Where is it fished? Bluefish is a migratory species that can be found throughout the Gulf of Mexico as well as on the East Coast of the United States. The Bluefish The Lobster Place procures is landed primarily in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Long Island and New Jersey.
Where does The Lobster Place Source it? The Lobster Place procures Bluefish through vendors in the New Fulton Fish Market in the Bronx as well as distributors like Blue Bay Seafood and Atlantic Coast Seafood.
Is it sustainable? Bluefish population levels are considered to be high due to good fisheries management and high population growth over the last few decades. There is a slight concern about by-catch of other marine mammals through the use of gillnets. However, gillnets used in Bluefish fishing are generally small resulting in lower marine mammal by-catch rates. The majority of Bluefish are caught using hook and line techniques, which has relatively low levels of associated by-catch.
