Our fish partner, Foley Fish, catches our wild-caught cod on Georges Bank. As one fisherman said, this habitat is great for fish because they “eat healthy and live clean.”
The Georges Bank runs from the Northern tip of Cape Cod to the southern tip of Nova Scotia. Because of its distance from shore, the waters are exceptionally clean. Fish thrive in this pollutant-free environment.
They also thrive because the Georges Bank is rich in nutrients. Two currents converge at the banks providing Georges Bank fish with a superior diet. The relatively shallow water (30-40 fathoms) allows the fish to better see and capture its foods. The end result is fish that are meaty and delicious to eat.
This fresh fish can be prepared simply. Coat the fish fillets with olive oil, a few squeezes of lemon, and a mixture of fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook in a pan or bake in the oven.
Cod is also a great choice for fish tacos, fish and chips and seafood stews.
