Common Name: Chilipepper Rockfish 
Family: Sebastidae

Species Catch Range: North Pacific - primarily California up to Vancouver
Seafood Watch Rating: "Best Choice"

Share Size:

Full Share ($22) - 1.25 lbs skin off, bone out fillet
Half Share ($13)  - ~0.75 lbs skin off, bone out fillet
 
The Details:

Chilipepper rockfish are a common deep sea rockfish that our boats which operate with a trawl system often catch. These rockfish have a beautiful red skin (hence the name) and a nice flakey, mild, and firm meat that we love to use for tacos and fish and chips! 


They travel in large schools and feed on small crustaceans, small squids, or small fishes such as anchovies, young hake, and small sardines. They mature quickly, reproduce in great volumes, and give birth to live young like many rockfish. 

These rockfish are caught in special light nets with holes large enough to allow smaller fish to escape. Underwater cameras are attached to them that allows our captain to target very specific schools of fish. Camera's on board the boat set up by the Nature Conservancy closely monitor what is brought on the boat to ensure 100% accountability and sustainability.  Very few boats have this sort of outfitting which allows for nearly zero by-catch!

Our partners consider this fish to be a "Best Choice"  because we work with boats that are members of the California Groundfish Collective which goes above and beyond our current regulations to ensure that every trip out to sea they make closely monitored and sustainable.

The Details:
This week we are delivering fresh Mediterranean Mussels (grown in Washington) and Manila Clams (grown in Washington) to our customers! These shellfish are being harvested and flown in from their respective ocean grown facilities - meaning we aren't dredging our oceans and destroying habitats to get them but rather plucking them from ropes or other structures that we place them on to grown in a sheltered inlet. 

Why Washington this week?

No local clams available and the harvest schedule for cove mussels currently doesn't align with our delivery schedule, but hopefully that will change soon! 

 Not only are they sustainable but they are also delicious, nutritious, and easy to cook!  

We love these tastey morsels in soups and chowders, on french fries, pastas, smothered in butter on the BBQ, or served on top of pizza (that's right - pizza actually can get more delicious!)

I know many of you eat fish for it's health benefits - shellfish can also offer many of the same benefits in addition to others!  

Mussels and Clams are teeming with vitamin B12, selenium, and manganese (offering over 100% of the RDA for each of them!) are they are particularly high in vitamin B12, selenium, iron, and manganese. That makes them excellent for nerve and blood cell health, treating or preventing iron-deficiency anemia, protecting against cellular damage, forming connective tissue, supporting cellular health, DNA synthesis, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, connective tissue and bone health, and blood sugar regulation (just to name a few!) 

Our partners at Seafood Watch consider these farmed shellfish a "Best Choice" because they actually help filter our ocean water and keep it healthy for all of its inhabitants. 

Seaweed Salsa and Pickles are back!!

Barnacle - Alaskan Kelp Salsa and Pickles

Seaweed salsa?! You will never want to switch back to regular salsa after trying this amazing, handcrafted, small batch salsa from Barnacle.  Our minds were blown after we dipped our first chip!

Barnacle was started by Matt and Lia - they grew up in Southeast Alaska - and for years they have been making salsa and pickles from fresh Alaskan Bull Kelp for their friends and families. 

In their own words:

"We realized we were making something special, a taste of home that we should share with more than our friends and family. Bringing the wild flavors of Southeast Alaska from our kitchen into yours. But, more than that, we want to work toward strengthening Alaska’s food system by producing tasty and nutritious products from abundant local resources. In remote and rural Southeast Alaska, we rely on our community and we want our work to help support that community. To ensure Barnacle benefits our community we will keep our business firmly rooted in here, in Southeast Alaska. 

Our first goal is to make delicious food, but we’re also conscious about using abundant and sustainable local food sources like wild kelp. By preserving kelp in the form of salsas and pickles, we are bringing this renewable resource to your kitchen year round. Thank you for your support!"

We are proud to support a small, sustainable, Alaskan company - we kickstarted our venture on a trip to Kodiak, AK - and truly believe in quality and integrity of the people there and products that they produce. 

Each is $10.95 - and weighs 10 oz
