Where Does Seabass Come From?
As you might assume from a fish with so many different varieties, seabass can be found in a wide variety of areas around the world. Baqueta seabass are found most often in the Sea of Cortez near Mexico. Alternatively, the Chilean variety are naturally found around Chile, Peru, and even Argentina in the clear waters. Pacific varieties might also be caught in California or in Mexico and South America. In any case, they are typically found in more temperate waters and be some of the most recognized landscapes around the world. Though these waters are sometimes known for population, seabass are found in areas where water quality is high and wild caught fish offer the great flavors you might expect from such a respected fish.
How Do We Catch Seabass?
Since there are a plethora of different seabass to choose from, there are a variety of different methods used to catch them. One of the most common methods is long line. This is most often used for Baqueta and relies on stringing dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of hooks onto a single, main line. From there, commercial fisherman can get the best catch rate. Alternatively, fish like the Chilean seabass are more often caught with hook and line. Meanwhile, most Pacific white varieties are collected with gill nets, which allows them to be captured in masses. Of course, other varieties can be raised in ponds or tanks to offer an option free of pollution.
Caught only in the wild, the Chilean variety are an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. This large, cod-shaped variety swims in the cold, deep waters around the Southern Hemisphere. Since they are known to grow up to 250 pounds, a single seabass from these waters can provide quite a lot of delicious meals. The fillets are shiny and white and their high fat content makes them easy to cook. Once they are prepared, you can enjoy a firm texture with a rich, buttery flavor.
Fresh Striped Bass (Shima Suzuki)
One of the few varieties raised in a controlled environment, this striped bass offers a unique flavor that you are sure to enjoy. They are raised in tanks in California and located inland to avoid any potential water pollution. Though the wild flavor might be lacking, the quality waters help ensure a consistently good taste. This variety is processed and sent out for shipment the same day, which means you will receive the absolute freshest options. Each package ships in real, dry ice, which preserves that initial freshness and protects it during shipping. With a delicate, slightly sweet flavor, these mild fish are easy to prepare.
