No antibiotics. No hormones. No pollutants. Striped bass is a cross between marine striped bass and freshwater white bass resulting in a fish with desirable characteristics of both species. They are silver-white skinned with distinctive black horizontal stripes. They are mild, delicate, and slightly sweet with flesh that is bright white, flaky and moderately firm. Delicious prepared baked or steamed, grilled, pan seared, or fried. At only 115 calories and less than 3 grams of fat, striped bass make a great healthy menu choice, and a wonderful alternative to redfish that are in so short a supply. A delicious switch.

Prices are starting to come down slowly on North Sea Salmon and Canadian Salmon fillet. The current market on Chilean Salmon still remains a factor for the next few months.

This E.U Certified Organic salmon is unlike any other farm raised salmon where it is raised in the open ocean of the Shetland Islands, and not in a Loch or Bay like other farms raised salmons.
