Ono, another name for Wahoo, means “sweet, very good to eat” in Hawaiian. Built like a torpedo, they are fast swimmers. A Wahoo is a close relative to the King Mackerel. Ono feed near the surface in 30 to 50 fathoms along coastal ledges and are occasionally caught in open deep water. The vast majority of Ono are caught in Hawaiian waters by trollers.
This well-known Pacific fish is deliciously cooked in a variety of ways. The fillets of the Wahoo are white and firm with a flaky and delicate texture. It’s flavor is mild. Wahoo is delicious saut’ed, baked, broiled or fried. Hawaii Wahoo is an excellent source of healthy, extra lean protein. It is also low in saturated fat and low in sodium.

Wild Isles Organic Salmon – 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. Its certified sustainable aquaculture methods are free from all antibiotics, hormones, & GMO, and its feed is certified organic and uses no synthetic coloring or pigments added. This allows for the quality, taste, and texture of a Wild King salmon to be available year round. You and your customers will taste and see the difference.
Wild Isles Ocean Trout – All Natural Ocean Trout (Steelhead) begins its life in fresh water land based closed containment recirculation tanks, once these rainbow trout reach maturity, they are then transferred to wild water off the island of Skye in Scotland where the continue their grow-out in salt water until they reach a harvest size of 7-12 lbs each. The result is an amazing sashimi quality ocean trout with a higher fat content then salmon and a great flavor that lends itself to any type of cooking or smoking. This sustainably raised ocean trout is a more sustainable and lower costing than a similar Tasmanian Ocean Trout.
Anglesey Aquaculture Mediterranean Sea Bass (Bronzino) – Unlike any other Mediterranean sea bass, this is truly sustainable. Welsh sea bass is raised in a ZERO WASTE land based recirculation farm in Wales, UK. From egg to harvest every detail of its life cycle is cared for and highly monitored to produce the best tasting sea bass using no antibiotics, hormones, and feed free from all GMO’s. Sustainable aquaculture and a zero waste policy (all waste from farms is collected and sold as organic fertilizer to local Welsh farmers) ensures that this sea bass is truly the world’s most sustainable bronzino. You and your customers will truly take the difference and have a boutique product that is only available in 3 cities in North America.
This product is a Hawaiian favorite with a great price point. Opah flesh has a light-pink to orange color, but turns white when cooked.
Golden tilefish is low in fat and has a delicate, sweet flavor similar to lobster or crab. Tilefish is primarily sold fresh whole, though it is also sold fresh in fillets and steaks. The larger tilefish have a firmer flesh and a longer shelf-life.
