We have 300 pounds of Small Scales Seafood's Scrumptious Halibut ready to sell and ship to you!
This is super top quality halibut caught by Kyle on a blustery day this fall. They were caught in the shallow waters of Kachemak Bay, AK on hook and long-line gear and hauled in by hand in an open skiff. Due to the small-scale nature of our operation each line of gear sat for less than 3 hours before being hauled in and delivered to our processor. All halibut were well bled upon landing and properly iced down. The fishing yielded beautiful medium sized fish that are portioned into 8oz pieces. (As fishermen we don't target the largest halibut because they are the main female reproducers. A smaller fish is also more tender and tasty for you!)
This is as good as halibut gets, from the fisherman directly to you!

Halibut is a high value, sought after fish. It's mild flavor and white flesh take well to marinades, grilling and rich dishes like our favorite, Halibut Olympia. Halibut is allotted to fishermen on an Individual Fishing Quota, or IFQ, meaning that a fishermen owns a certain number of 'pounds.' (This is unlike salmon where a permit allows you to catch as much as you can in one fishing period.) Based on the health of the resource in each particular fishing area of Alaska a fishermen is then allowed to fish a percentage of his owned stock. Currently we are allowed to fish only about 30% of our owned IFQ. The fishery is restricted because a large portion of the population is growing very slowly. This is the long explanation to why halibut currently costs a lot per pound!
