Black Sea Bass – Whole or Fillet

Starting at $60.00 ($12.00 / lb)

Product Description

Fished along the Eastern seaboard from Rhode Island to Virginia, the Black Sea Bass is one of the most versatile fish for preparations and one of our most popular.

Simply one of the best fish to grill or bake whole.

Their white flesh is sweet and mild when cooked – and many prefer to leave their skin on because it crisps up nicely in the pan. Also wonderful broiled, poached and steamed.
