Alaskan Halibut season is here!

Halibut is a very versatile and delicious fish…sweet, delicate with a firm meaty texture. Cook it in any style—braise, bake, fry, steam and it’s even firm enough to grill the steaks or fillets. We’re getting the best halibut in our 40 year history right now!

Up until 1995, halibut season in Alaska was limited to two 24-48 hour openings of derby-style fishing where tons of fish were caught quickly and handled poorly.

We now have an individual vessel quota system, which stretches out the season over an 8-month period. The fish are handled much better than the derby days, iced properly and flown to market fast.

Come in and try our first Alaskan halibut of 2020…in season all through the summer for grilling.
