Rockfish

Also known as: Pacific Snapper

Canadian rockfish, a gem from our Pacific coast, is especially prominent in British Columbia's waters. Sometimes called “Pacific snapper,” this bass-like fish is a culinary treat.

Rockfish offers a mild, slightly sweet taste complemented by a firm, yet flaky texture, making it a versatile choice for your kitchen endeavors. Whether you're thinking of grilling, baking, or whipping up a traditional fish fry, rockfish is a delicious choice. You'll appreciate its ability to absorb marinades and seasonings, paving the way for a range of dishes from simple to gourmet.
