Lingcod is a favorite with recreational anglers on the West Coast. Neither a cod nor a snapper, this fin fish shares their firm texture, white flesh, and mild flavor. Filets are approximately 1 pound each and come to you frozen.
All of the lingcod offered through Fishermen Direct Seafood are caught individually hook and line off the Rogue Reef and in adjacent nearshore waters in Curry and Coos Counties. Traditional hook and line fishing methods reduce by-catch; this method also ensures that the fish are bled and chilled right away, resulting in a superior taste and freshness.
Here’s what Greenpeace says about hook and line fishing: “Hook and line fishing is more selective than other types of fishing in terms of species and size, and provides high quality fish. The method can be used on spawning fish as they normally only bite after completion of spawning. Lines are set for a relatively short time so that any unwanted species can often be returned live to the sea.”
