Found only in the North Pacific, sablefish has a rich, buttery flesh that’s made it popular with consumers and restaurateurs. “Best Choices” reflect no major concerns over sablefish abundance, effectiveness of management, bycatch or habitat damage. ¬†There are some issues¬†with stock status of sablefish from California, Oregon and Washington so when caught with trawl and longline are ranked “Some Concerns.” When caught with pots there are fewer concerns over bycatch and habitat damage, so sablefish from pots is still a “Best Choice.”
