Alaskan Halibut Fish - Wild Caught
Wild Caught Alaskan Halibut
The Source of Alaskan Halibut
Tropical Traditions sources their halibut directly from fishermen living in Alaska caught during the fishing season. We source the finest quality wild & natural halibut imaginable from a second generation Alaskan fishing family. Each fish has been wild harvested and handled with great care aboard a small family owned fishing boat. Special quality enhancing equipment and techniques used onboard result in a level of excellence that is just not possible within the larger supply chain.
The Alaskan Halibut Catch
Always Wild Caught, Sustainable & Pure. Conscientious handling techniques are used at sea to preserve quality and ease stress levels of the fish. This results in an extended shelf life, a moist and tender flake and exceptionally clean flavor.
On board, insulated fish holds, custom made slush ice bags and layer icing are all utilized to preserve freshness and maintain a consistently well chilled temperature throughout the harvest period.
Wild Alaskan halibut is neither threatened nor endangered. Commercial harvest limits are closely monitored and restricted by the State of Alaska in order to safeguard each species and their surrounding ecology. Fisheries within the state of Alaska are sustainable. Wild Alaskan seafood is accepted as a "best choice" for an environmentally concerned consumer. In 2006 Alaska’s Halibut fishery was also awarded certification by the Marine Stewardship Council, proving once again Alaska Seafood to be the top choice for sustaining a healthy environment. Alaska’s abundant fish stocks and diverse wildlife are a testament to the wisdom of these stringent management guidelines.
Processing & Packaging
Small, artisan quality batches are butchered and packed by hand in a DEC and State of Alaska approved facility. Our advanced quality packaging protects your halibut from harmful air, moisture and freezer odor that cause a deteriorated flavor and texture over time.
