If you’re new to buying seafood online, you may not understand the black cod price from Lummi Island Wild. For those used to buying seafood in the grocery store, our price might be a little higher than what you’d see at Whole Foods or Jewel-Osco. But while our costs could be more than you’re used to paying, we promise – it’s for a good reason. Our black cod is sustainably caught, responsibly managed, and fairly priced, resulting in a meal that feels as good as it tastes.
Our Black Cod Products
Lummi Island Wild offers a variety of cod products at various price points. However, it is important for us to distinguish between black cod and “true” cod. True Pacific cod is a naturally lean fish with large flakes and a firm texture. By contrast, black cod, also known as sablefish or butterfish, is a fatty, rich whitefish with a velvety texture and buttery flavor. While we have several Pacific cod options, we have just one black cod product.
- Alaskan Black Cod Fillets – Weighing an average of 1.25lbs, these black cod fillets are sure to be a showstopper at your next dinner party or family meal. Boneless and skin-on, they are delicious with any number of flavor additions – from a miso marinade to simple olive oil and salt.
Like all our fresh seafood products, our black cod ships frozen. Once thawed in a refrigerator, it will remain safe to eat for up to 7 days. Please note that, because black cod has a high oil content, it will spoil faster than other types of fish. We don’t recommend storing frozen cod for more than a couple of months.
