Well known and highly prized in the Northwest, it is rarely available beyond the west coast. The fishery is tightly monitored in Alaska and the catch quota is relatively small due to Alaska`s strong commitment to sustainability. Of a total catch of a little over 500,000 lbs. only about half is targeted catch with the other half caught as allowable by-catch of other fisheries.Unfortunately, as by-catch those lingcod are poorly handled and the quality of those fish is generally poor.Our Triad Brand Lingcod are a different story. We target Lingcod exclusively in the April/May fishery and produce the highest quality Lingcod in the market. We employ a specialized method of trolling with hook and line that is used exclusively for Lingcod. It`s called "dinglebaring", referring to the 4 foot steel rod that`s used as a weight on the end of a single wire line that allows the lures to be trolled along a rough snaggy bottom where the Lingcod feed without getting hung up. The Lingcod bite and are brought to the surface alive and are humanely stunned, live bled, and dressed immediately. Each fish is handled individually to prevent the possibility of bruising and frozen at sea onboard pre-rigor mortise to -30 degrees within minutes of capture.
