Fishery: +

Caught: OR / WA Coast

Landed: Newport, OR

Processed: Newport, OR

The West Coast Groundfish Fishery is a conservation management success story. After the fishery was declared a federal disaster following decades of poor management, fishers, regulators, scientists, conservationists, and groups like the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) worked together toward recovery. The fishery has now been awarded MSC certification as sustainable and well managed and nearly all groundfish caught from CA to WA rank as “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program. NOAA Fisheries and the Pacific Fishery Management Council oversee the management of 90+ species of groundfish in U.S. federal waters.

Summary:+

Your jerky was made from “Best Choice” Yellowtail rockfish landed in Newport, Oregon. These fish were bycatch caught by several local mid-water trawl fishers targeting Pacific whiting. Some Widow rockfish, which school with or near Yellowtail, are also part of this catch. Yellowtail and Widow rockfish are a part of the conservation and management success story in the US West Coast Groundfish fishery.

How did we choose rockfish? Science!

The Rockfish is a little known rockstar of the US West Coast, and a true success story in fisheries management.

The name ‘Pacific rockfish’ describes family of abundant, sustainably-managed Sebastes species common from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf of Alaska. After being severely depleted as a result of poor management and overfishing in the 1980’s and 1990’s (to the point that the fishery was declared a federal disaster in 2000), a new management program began in 2011 to help West Coast fishermen stay within catch limits and to avoid vulnerable species and sensitive habitat. Through the hard work of scientists, policymakers, and the fishing community, populations have rebounded, fishermen are catching rockfish, and these species are now considered a sustainable choice. At the same time, sensitive ecological areas have been protected and bycatch has reduced dramatically along the West Coast, earning most species in the fishery a “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” listing and prompting the the Marine Stewardship Council to certify 13 species of West Coast groundfish.

Now, here’s the rub: despite the fact that they are a rich source of high-quality, sustainable protein, rockfish are currently undervalued and underutilized. Consumer interest for this noble family of fishes has yet to bounce back. In fact, only 24% of the scientifically-based West Coast quota for Pacific rockfish is caught, largely because our local rockstars have been replaced by various foreign whitefish species. As a result, some fishing communities continue to struggle, but you can help bring this success story full circle when you make the right seafood choices.

OneForNeptune uses this amazing wild-caught fish to make our delicious jerky in fulfillment of our mission, which is “to innovate and incite change in the seafood industry by building a healthy, sustainable relationship with the ocean". In our eyes, the story of West Coast groundfish should serve as a model for recovery, and it is our hope that rockfish jerky is just the beginning of sweeping change in seafood. You, the consumer, can demand traceable, sustainable, high-quality seafood and be the change you want to see in our oceans.

Fisher: +

Vessel: F/V Stella

Captain: Peter McCarthy

Many rockfish species caught in the Gulf of Alaska are rated as a “Best Choice”, as the stock is healthy, and current management is rated effective.

Summary:+

Your jerky was made from Dusky rockfish and with several other co-schooling rockfish species caught as bycatch in the Alaskan Sablefish fishery. They have a mild, rich flavor and we put them toward their highest purpose as incidental catch. Dusky caught in the Gulf of Alaska are rated as a “Best Choice”, as the stock is healthy, and current management is rated effective.
