Wild-caught, frozen, 5-6oz, skinless Icelandic cod portions. A product of Iceland. Sold per pound.
Icelandic cod is wild-caught in the deep, cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean surrounding Iceland. The fish is hook and line caught which greatly reduces the stress on the fish and in turn, the meat has a much more firm texture. The hook and line method also dramatically reduces the amount of by-catch which is one of the leading causes of overfishing. The Icelandic cod fishery is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) recommended for its responsible and sustainable methods of fishing. It is most commonly sold in skinless, boneless fillets that range in size from 0.5 - 2 lbs per fillet. The flesh is a pearl white colour with darker brown accents on the side where the skin was removed.
