Pacific Cod is America’s favorite whitefish because of its mild flavor and flaky texture. It is a versatile source of healthy protein that can be found on a variety of menus from fine dining restaurants to fish and chip shops and is served at home fried, baked and sauteed.
Cod is caught around Kodiak Island by various types of fishing boats using hook and line (also known as longline), pots, jig gear and trawl gear. Our fishermen are highly experienced and quality focused, producing a premium product that is always a family favorite. Our fillets are skinless, boneless and vacuum packed and frozen.
Pacific Cod is the common name for the genus Gadus macrocephalus, the species of cod harvested around Kodiak Island. For those who are used to Atlantic Cod, that specie is slightly different and is called Gadus morhua. Cod has a fascinating history throughout the western hemisphere. Wars have been fought over the right to fish cod and in 1958 confrontations arose between Iceland and the United Kingdom over the rights to fish in the North Atlantic. Eventually in 1976, a 200 nautical mile boundary was established around Iceland which cost countless jobs to fishing communities in the UK. Some historians believe that the Vikings continued west from Iceland to North America in pursuit of cod fishing grounds, arriving ahead of Columbus. Centuries later, cod is still a highly sought fish and always in demand worldwide because of its versatility and availability.
