Known by many real names and aliases, there are a large variety of fish in the Sebastes family. While we at ISA offer a number of the rockfish harvested from Alaska’s pristine waters, those listed here are but a sampling of the most popular.
Rockfish are extremely slow growing and can range in size from 1 to 40 pounds, depending on species, but 2 to 5 pounds is most common. Whole rockfish are often characterized by their bulging eyes and distended air bladders as a result of being brought up from the ocean’s great depths, though this is not an indication of poor quality. In Asian cuisine rockfish
are often served whole.
