Wondering where to buy Black Cod? Look for a seafood distributor along the U.S. west coast. These distributors need only look off their local shores for Black Cod, minimizing the time it takes for the fish to get from the ocean to a controlled facility. Also, the Black Cod population is at target levels along the west coast and current fishing rates promote its growth. This ensures a sustainable ocean stock. Finally fishermen and seafood distributors fishing operating on the US west coast are under jurisdiction of the US government, which is the world leader in sustainable seafood practices.
