Featured Specialty Seafood:
PACIFICO STRIPED BASS
Sustainability: 4 Star BAP Cert.
From northern Baja California, Mexico, the Pacifico Striped Bass are raised in the cold, clear waters of the open Pacific ocean. Underwater currents, combined with proximity to a submarine canyon, provide natural and sustainable cleansing of the site. The distance from the coastline ensures protection from land sourced contaminants & allows for isolation. The striped bass diet is formulated to optimize fish welfare and fish-in-fish-out ratio. Their feed contains no terrestrial land protein and utilizes trimmings from existing fisheries to minimize the use of wild fish meal. They work to closely match the diet the fish would have in the wild and the primary feed contains no hormones, no antibiotics and is BAP-certified. Striped Bass maintains an appearance, flavor and texture that holds up to any type of prep.
