Chilean Seabass


Santa Monica Seafood has committed to supplying Chilean Seabass exclusively from MSC certified fisheries

Longline Ross Sea Antarctic Toothfish became MSC certified in 2010 following rigorous changes to the fisheries’ management that rebuilt the stocks and minimized the fisheries impacts to the bottom, by-catch and sea birds. Management continues to improve every year with every vessel in the area monitored by satellites and with offloading strictly monitored under the Agreement on Port State Measures (PSMA) to virtually eliminate illegal, unreported, unregulated (IUU) fish entering our supply chain.

Our fish comes with full MSC chain of custody.


CHARACTERISTICS:  Living in the cold, deep waters of the Southern Hemisphere means a high fat content and rich, moist meat with a buttery flavor that just melts in your mouth. This wonderful fish cooks up white and flaky with a firm texture. It’s a great source of protein and is rich in Omega 3’s.  Chilean Seabass is difficult to overcook because of the oils.
