CAUGHT ALL YEAR
The Pacific rockfish family may be the most important year-round source of groundfish on the West Coast, comprised of over 100 species. It is marketed widely as Pacific snapper. There is a significant lost opportunity for storytelling within the vast diversity of species of this fish, their habits, their homes and their behaviors.
Versatile and affordable, rockfish are a seafood staple for supermarkets and restaurants from Seattle to San Diego. These fish have mild and slightly sweet-tasting flesh.
Once perilously depleted by excessive fishing, this fish represents the kind of conservation and fishery management story that we want the world to hear and to celebrate!
