Adult Black Cod are opportunistic feeders, preying on everything from pollock and herring to squid and jellyfish. It’s a good thing they are, since they are rather long-lived, with a maximum recorded age of 94 years!
The delectable meat of Black Cod has a high fat content, so it can be prepared in a variety of ways, including baking, grilling, smoking, broiling and frying. Although fatty, the flavor is mellow and rich, so we suggest a minimal amount of spices, herbs or sauces.
Black Cod is high in long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids, just about as much as wild salmon. It’s also a good source of Vitamin A and Iron.
