Alaska is one of only a handful of states that have fishery conservation written into it’s state constitution.
They have rigorous rules and regulations regarding method of harvest, quotas, fishing areas, and impact on the overall environment. The Alaskan EPA routinely tests for residual contaminants including mercury, petroleum residue, and radioactive material. As a result, Alaska consistently scores as one of the cleanest fisheries in the world.
Halibut is a long line troll fished species, which minimizes unwanted by-catch, and overall damage to surrounding environment and other animal species. The specific fishery where we get our halibut from is the south-east fishery near Sitka Alaska, north of British Colombia.
We applaud the efforts of Alaska to help our environment thrive! This weekend, we’re featuring tender, flaky Halibut from Sitka, Alaska!
