Lingcod is a versatile, flaky white fish with a mild flavor and medium-firm texture.
Prized by diners in the Pacific Northwest, it's delicious baked, broiled, grilled, or sautéed.
Vital Choice lingcod is sustainably harvested by hook and line off the coasts of British Columbia or South East Alaska.
Each 5 lb. pack features individually vacuum-sealed skinless-boneless portions of varying weights.
Please note: The flesh of some raw lingcod has a natural blue-green tinge that disappears with cooking, leaving beautiful white flesh.
Lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus) is native to the North American west coast from the Gulf of Alaska to Baja California, Mexico.
Lingcod can grow to five feet and weigh 80 pounds or more. They feed primarily on octopi, crab, and bottom-dwelling fish, and in turn are hunted by seals and other marine mammals.
Though not closely related to either ling or cod, the name "lingcod" originated because it somewhat resembles those fish. Other names for lingcod include Cultus cod, blue cod, bluefish, green cod, buffalo cod, greenling, and white cod.
