Vertically integrated from hatchery to processing, our king kampachi are grown four miles offshore in state of the art pens from local brood stock native to the area. In the pens, the fish are able to thrive in their natural environment until they reach harvest size. The pens are located in deep water with strong currents where no hormones or antibiotics are used. King Kampachi have a clean, crisp bite when served raw and a buttery, delicious flavor when cooked. It is light on the palette and suited for baking, roasting, steaming, pan searing or grilling.

A resilient Central and South American delicacy, Corvina is a member of the drum family and very similar to redfish. The meat shares many characteristics with Grouper and also makes a great substitute. Golden Corvina is mild, slightly sweet, and cooks up firm with large flakes. Corvina is very versatile and is great for ceviche, as well as grilled or sauteed.
